About this book

Throughout the world, food production has become more complex. Raw materials are often sourced globally, and the food is processed through an increasing variety of complex techniques. Food safety issues such as E. coli outbreaks and BSE are never far from the newspaper headlines, becoming grounds for increasing public concern. The Microbiology of Safe Food reviews the production of food and the level of microorganisms that humans ingest, covering both food pathogens and food spoilage organisms. The comprehensive contents include: the dominant foodborne microorganisms; the means of their detection; microbiological criteria and sampling plans; the setting of microbial limits for end-product testing; predictive microbiology; the role of HACCP; Microbiological Risk Assessment; the setting of Food Safety Objectives; and, relevant international regulations and legislation. Internet sources of information are listed and chapter up-dates are available on the World Wide Web.
