Food handler behaviour is important for producing safe food with food handler error a factor in many outbreaks. This chapter reviews food handler knowledge, attitudes and practices and the research methods used in their study. Infected food handlers spread pathogens to foods and other workers and the factors influencing this are analysed. Food handlers play a role in cross-contamination, an increasingly reported risk. The mechanisms for this and the components of hand hygiene are discussed. Historically, non-compliance has been assessed

This chapter is a short overview of the current knowledge regarding pathogens in dry processing environments. The main control measures to ensure the safety of food products are then discussed, focusing on the behavior of Salmonella and control measures such as cleaning. Since most of the literature related to contamination of low-moisture foods is related to Salmonella, the majority of the topics discussed in the following sections are about this pathogen. Where available and relevant, additional information on other pathogens

This chapter is a series of questions and answers between John Sofos and Bruce Tompkin, giving Bruce’s perspective as a food microbiologist on food safety. Progress depends on epidemiologic studies by public health agencies and research by universities and government laboratories. Industry responded to microbial hazards and food-pathogen combinations with good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) systems. Examples demonstrate improved consumer protection. Success depends on control measures, regulatory approval and consumer acceptance. Existing

Consumers are switching to fresh, minimally processed foods, creating challenges in terms of ensuring food safety. The shift in food production from local to global has led to a complex logistics chain. These trends and challenges have lead to the development of packaging materials with better barrier properties, and active and intelligent packaging. A recent trend is the increasing sustainability of food packaging. Modified atmosphere or vacuum packaging gives a longer shelf life by reducing the growth of spoilage microorganisms

This chapter gives an overview of the recent research on the epidemiology of human salmonellosis. It begins by describing the occurrence of human salmonellosis including a discussion on the burden of illness studies, before describing the most important risk factors for human disease. Subtyping of Salmonella is increasingly used for tracking sources of infection and an update on classification and characterisation is given. Finally, the chapter reviews source attribution studies based on the application of microbial subtyping data and foodborne

This chapter discusses the research on the use of organic acids as decontamination agents for foods of animal and plant origin. First, the application of organic acids to meat decontamination (i.e., carcasses and trimmings) is presented followed by an overview of research into the use of organic acids for decontaminating vegetables, fruits and fruit juices. Both single and multiple interventions are discussed. Then, the potential concerns of microbial adaptation to acid treatments are examined and the current legislation status

Viruses are common causes of foodborne outbreaks. Viral diseases have low fatality rates but transmission to humans via food is important due to the high probability of consuming fecally contaminated food or water because of poor food handling. Because of the low infectious doses of some foodborne viruses, there is a need for standardization and the development of new sensitive methods for detecting viruses. The focus is on molecular and non-molecular approaches, and emerging methods for the detection of foodborne

This chapter outlines the interactions between a hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) system and multiple prerequisite programs (PRPs) to produce a food-safety management program that can be applied globally throughout the food supply chain, from farm to table. The HACCP system is supported by three major PRPs: good agricultural practices, good hygienic practices and good consumer practices. While there are many effective food-safety practices and regulations, the current global system of food-safety management is poor. This chapter describes

Current methods for detecting bacterial pathogens from foods and the environment are slow. Although newer, more rapid detection techniques have been developed, they have insufficient sensitivity and produce residual matrix-associated inhibitory compounds. The detection of foodborne pathogens could be more rapid if the target cells were separated and concentrated before detection, a procedure known as pre-analytical sample processing. We review sample preparation techniques, focusing on target-specific methods. Unlike non-target-specific separation/concentration methods, these approaches use bioaffinity ligands, preventing co-precipitation of

Burden of disease estimates inform public health policy by ranking issues, indicating trends, assessing intervention options and supporting risk management. Foodborne disease caused by microbiological, chemical or physical hazards includes acute and chronic conditions and is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. To characterise the burden of foodborne disease, the WHO Department of Food Safety Zoonoses and Foodborne Diseases launched the Initiative to Estimate the Global Burden of Foodborne Diseases. The Initiative is supported by the Foodborne Disease

Traditionally, populations of microbes have been characterized rather than individual cells. Methods for examining individual cells have long been available but there were technological barriers. The rapidity and ease of growing microbes to large numbers has limited the motivation to study them individually and terminology reinforced the belief that cell populations comprise assemblages of identical cells. Recognition of the heterogeneity of individual cells, coupled with technology capable of resolving discrete differences has driven single-cell microbiology, enabling the high-resolution study and

Since the invention of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the 1980s, applied molecular biology has progressed enormously. Following technological advancements, PCR analysis has become quantitative rather than qualitative. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) revolutionized molecular approaches to food safety, due to the ability to quantify specific pathogens in food. New methods for studying the transcription process, such as microarrays, can be used to investigate the behavior of pathogens in the food environment. Indeed, the effects of food–related conditions on gene

Foodborne bacterial infections are a major healthcare concern worldwide. Bacteriophages, the natural enemies of bacteria, are an ideal means to detect and control foodborne pathogens. In this chapter, bacteriophages for use in food are introduced and general considerations regarding phage characteristics, application-specific parameters and potential problems are presented. Bacteriophage lytic enzymes are discussed as potent novel antimicrobials. The use of bacteriophage preparations in the detection of foodborne pathogens is illustrated. Recent regulatory approvals and scientific advances in bacteriophage-based pathogen detection
