Bolton Quoted in BDN Article on Food Safety at Lobster Processing Plant
Jason Bolton, a statewide food safety specialist and assistant professor with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, was interviewed for a Bangor Daily News article about the U.S. Food and Drug Administration finding federal seafood safety violations at Linda Bean’s lobster processing plant in Rockland. The plant’s manager told the BDN the company contacted UMaine to have a food safety expert visit the plant and evaluate practices. Bolton said he is scheduled to visit the plant soon and plans to educate and help the company. Bolton said he and another food specialist with UMaine Extension assist 400 to 500 companies a year, ranging from seafood processors to slaughterhouses and jam producers.
