ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Food Sentry, LLC, which provides global food safety data to organizations, consumers and researchers, has released a review on the countries with the most frequent food safety violations for 2013.

Their report states that "the countries that were the top ten sources of violative products in 2013 were (in order of frequency): India, China, Mexico, France, United States, Vietnam, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Turkey, and Spain."

Further, they list as the most common found food safety violation, "excessive or illegal pesticide contamination," which they state, "made up over a third of all incidents."

Their data is the culmination of 12 months' worth of analysis of data on global food violation incidents. Their data is "gathered from multiple sources including, but not limited to, U.S., E.U., and Japanese regulatory entities."

The final datasets and infographic give an idea of where the most prolific food safety violations occur and what those violations are.

"Food safety violations are nothing new," says Food Sentry Senior Intelligence Analyst Zak Solomon, "they've just been receiving a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. We import from every single one of the countries in the top ten, and, in fact, the U.S. is among the most common violators. Clearly understanding food safety from a global perspective is immensely important."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
