    Description

    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 4e covers how the incidence and impact of foodborne diseases is determined, foodborne intoxications with an introduction noting common features among these diseases and control measures that are applicable before and after the basic foodstuff is harvested.

    Readership

    Professionals in food safety and the prevention of foodborne illness; food scientists, microbiologists, production supervisors, quality assurance directors,
    advanced undergraduate, graduate and professional students, health professionals, public health workers, and government advisors in related fields

"This reference is a collective effort edited by Morris and Potter, a public health consultant. The contributors mostly have backgrounds in food science, infectious diseases, and public health…Each chapter, when possible, contains sections on clinical features of infection, the microbiology of the organism, exposure pathways, and prevention and control."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
"The work is now in its fourth edition and presents the latest findings on diseases, infectious agents, methods of transmission and application of data on risk for the control of diseases transmitted through food.  In particular, emphasis is given to the evaluation of borne pathogen and the development of approaches risk-based food safety and its regulations…"--Tecnica Molitoria (Milling Technique), September 2013 (in Italian)
"The text is an important source of information, necessary for reducing and eliminating infections and food-borne intoxications."--Industrie Alimentari (Food Industry), September 2013 (in Italian)
