App Brings Health Code Violations and Product Recalls to Users

Caption: A search on FoodFeed, an app for Android, compares health code violations at a restaurant to the average number of violations in the area. Another feature brings together reports from various sources to warn users about recalls on products like food or over-the-counter medicine. Students developed FoodFeed at a Pacific Northwest National Laboratory competition.
