On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the Bar-S Foods Company in Altus, Oklahoma, has initiated a voluntary recall of more than 370,000 pounds of chicken and pork hot dogs and corn dog products due to possible Listeria contamination. Though no cases of contamination were confirmed, past issues with Listeria prompted the recall as a precautionary measure.
Kendra Nightingale, an associate professor in the Texas Tech University Department of Animal and Food Sciences, is an expert in Listeria and focuses her research mainly on food safety during pre-harvest and post-harvest time periods.

The Department of Animal and Food Sciences is housed within the College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources.
In 2004, Animal and Food Sciences moved into a new state-of-the-art teaching and research facility. This new facility includes four multimedia-classrooms, five specialized teaching & research labs, the largest retail meat cooler on a university campus, and a retail store (COWamongus).
The department's Equestrian Center is home to Texas Tech's champion Ranch Horse Team, Rodeo Team, Equestrian Team, Therapeutic Riding Center and a 4-H Youth group.Facebook
