Viruses in Food and Water

Viruses can be highly infectious and are capable of causing widespread disease outbreaks. The significance of viral pathogens in food and waterborne illness is increasingly being recognised and viruses transferred by these routes are important areas of research. Viruses in food and water reviews the risks, surveillance and control of food and waterborne viral disease. Part one provides an introduction to food and environmental virology. Part two goes on to explore methods of detection, surveillance and risk assessment of viruses in food and water; it includes chapters on molecular detection of viruses in foods and food processing environments, quality control in the analytical laboratory, and quantitative risk assessment for food and waterborne viruses. Part three focuses on virus transmission routes and control of food and water contamination. It contains chapters on fresh produce, shellfish and viral presence, and control methods in waste water and sewage. Finally, part four highlights particular pathogens including norovirus, hepatitis A and emerging zoonotic viruses. Viruses in food and water is a standard reference book for microbiologists in academia, analytical labs and the food and water treatment industries, as well as environmental health professionals and researchers working on foodborne viruses. Explores methods of detection, surveilance and risk assessment of viruses in food and water Considers virus transmission routes and control of food and water contamination Highlights advances in the understanding of specific pathogens, including norovirus, hepatitis A and rotaviruses and the advances in vaccine development

This is the first book to focus entirely on viruses in foods. It collates information on the occurrence, detection, transmission, and epidemiology of viruses in various foods. Although methods for bacterial detection in food are available, methods for detection of viruses in food, with the exception of shellfish, are not available. It is important, therefore, to develop methods for direct examination of food for viruses and to explore alternate indicators that can accurately reflect the virological quality of food. This

Food-borne viruses are recognized as a major health concern, but their distribution, definition, and impact are poorly understood. The volume Food-Borne Viruses goes a long way in correcting that problem. Written by leading scientists in the field, it brings together the latest knowledge on these viral strains, their detection and control, and associated challenges.

The transmission of human pathogens by faecally contaminated fruit and vegetables is well established, but the burden of disease caused by foodborne pathogens is unknown. Fresh produce can be contaminated through the use of polluted irrigation water or by the handling of the produce by infected individuals either pre- or post harvest. There is very little known regarding the extent of viral contamination of irrigation water and fresh produce in South Africa. Noroviruses (NoV) and hepatitis A virus (HAV) are

Many risk management plans as currently implemented by the food industry, appear to be primarily designed to address bacteriological concerns. Hence, these often fail to function when public health risks associated with biological agents such as viruses and prions are to be addressed. Similarly, veterinary education in food hygiene mainly focusses on bacterial agents transferred by domestic animal species via meat and milk and the products manufactured therefrom. Additionally, training rarely includes the dangers associated with other (non-animal based) food

Food-borne diseases are major causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. It is estimated that about 2.2 million people die yearly due to food and water contamination. Food safety and consequently food security are therefore of immense importance to public health, international trade and world economy. This book, which has 10 chapters, provides information on the incidence, health implications and effective prevention and control strategies of food-related diseases. The book will be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students, educators and researchers

The accelerated globalization of the food supply, coupled with toughening government standards, is putting global food production, distribution, and retail industries under a high-intensity spotlight. High publicity cases about foodborne illnesses over recent years have heightened public awareness of food safety issues, and momentum has been building to find new ways to detect and identify foodborne pathogens and eliminate food-related infections and intoxications. This extensively revised Third Edition covers how the incidence and impact of foodborne diseases is determined, foodborne

Globalization of the food supply has created conditions favorable for the emergence, reemergence, and spread of food-borne pathogens-compounding the challenge of anticipating, detecting, and effectively responding to food-borne threats to health. In the United States, food-borne agents affect 1 out of 6 individuals and cause approximately 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations, and 3,000 deaths each year. This figure likely represents just the tip of the iceberg, because it fails to account for the broad array of food-borne illnesses or for their wide-ranging repercussions for consumers,

Why are there no standardised methods for the detection of enteric viruses in food and water?This is a repeated question raised by the industry and food authority in particular in connection with the recent norovirus outbreaks associated with imported oysters and raspberries. The food industry feels abandoned, as without standardised methods they have no tools to convincingly demonstrate that the food prepared at their factories will be safe for the consumer. Because currently no methods are available to measure
