WASHINGTON — The Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition of the Food and Drug Administration announced it will make $1 million available in research funds for fiscal 2008.

"These funds will be used to support research efforts to advance the safe transportation and preparation of produce and to help reduce the incidence of foodborne illness that may be associated with fresh produce consumption," the F.D.A. noted in a June 2 filing in the Federal Register.

According to the F.D.A., the funding will provide 18 months of support. There will be no additional years of noncompetitive continuation support, the F.D.A. noted.
