The new laboratory building will be part of a nationwide network of regulatory analytical laboratories to coordinate and conduct laboratory services in support of the USDA-Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) public health mission.
The single-story, 83,000-sf building will consist of microbiology and chemistry laboratories, administrative offices, supply storage, processing area and large warehouse with adjacent loading docks.
The facility location is particularly strategic, allowing FSIS proximity to the airport for sample receiving and shipping, and close to a university for recruitment.
The FSIS is the public health agency in the USDA responsible for protecting the public’s health by ensuring that meat, poultry and egg products are safe, wholesome and properly labeled.
