Format

smokedfish is a data frame with 2 columns named left and right, describing each observed value of Listeria monocytogenes concentration (in CFU/g) as an interval. The left column contains either NA for left censored observations, the left bound of the interval for interval censored observations, or the observed value for non-censored observations. The right column contains either NA for right censored observations, the right bound of the interval for interval censored observations, or the observed value for non-censored observations.
