The Food Safety Performance of Chicken Suppliers to the National School Lunch Program.

This paper uses probit regressions and data from the Food Safety Inspection Service to empirically examine the food safety performance of establishments supplying raw chicken to the National School Lunch Program. Results provide some support that plant supplying the National School Lunch Program perform better on Salmonella tests than other plants selling in commercial markets. Since there are no special regulatory requirements imposed on suppliers, it is argued that exposure to public scrutiny and the fear of a lost reputation for food safety motivates plants to perform better on Salmonella tests.
