    BACKGROUNDER: Food Irradiation By Doris Stanley Decem The Food and Drug Administration on Dec. 2 approved irradiation to control microorganisms on fresh and frozen red meats including beef, lamb and pork. This FDA approval--and some previous ones--were based partly on research by chemist Donald W. Thayer of USDA's Agricultural Research Service.   Initially used to ensure safety of high-value spices, fish and meat, food irradiation is increasingly used also on fresh fruits and vegetables to prevent the spread of invasive insects. And several countries provide irradiated food rations during natural disasters when hygiene and cold storage are disrupted. Food irradiation calls for shining.
