"The diverse perspectives on food safety that the NACMPI members bring are invaluable to our success in ensuring the safety of the foods we eat," said Vilsack.

The new NACMPI members are: Dr. Carol Lorenzen - University of Missouri; Ms. Sherika Harvey - Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce; Dr. John Marcy - University of Arkansas Center of Excellence for Poultry Science; Mr. Christopher Waldrop - Consumer Federation of America; and Dr. Michael Rybolt - Hillshire Brands Company.

Returning members of the committee are: Patricia Buck - Center for Foodborne Illness Research & Prevention; Dr. Fur-Chi Chen - Tennessee State University; Nancy J. Donley - STOP Foodborne Illness, Inc.; Dr. Veneranda Gapud - Process Management Consulting; Dr. Heidi Kassenborg, Minnesota Department of Agriculture; Sarah A. Klein - Center for Science in the Public Interest; Robert G. Reinhard - Hillshire Brands Company; Dr. Craig E. Shultz, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture; Dr. John Tilden - Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development; Steve E. Warshawer - Mesa Top Farm; Dr. J. Byron Williams, Mississippi State University; and Leonard W. Winchester - Public Health - Seattle and King County, Washington State.

As previously announced, NACMPI will host public meetings Jan. 16 and Jan. 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in the first floor auditorium of the Patriot Plaza III building, located at 355 E St., SW, Washington, DC 20024.
