Part One looks at general techniques in assessing and managing bacterial hazards. After a review of analytical methods, the book covers modeling pathogen behavior and carrying out a risk assessment as the essential foundation for effective food safety management. It focuses on good management practice in key stages in the supply chain, starting with farm production. Topics include hygienic plant design and sanitation, and safe process design and operation. This provides the foundation for a discussion of what makes for effective HACCP systems implementation.
This discussion of pathogen control then provides a context for Part Two which looks at what this means in practice for key pathogens such as E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria and Campylobacter. Each chapter discusses pathogen characteristics, detection methods and control procedures. Part Three then looks at non-bacterial hazards such as viruses and parasites, as well as emerging 'hazards' such as Mycobacterium paratuberculosis and the increasingly important area of chronic infections. Foodborne Pathogens is an essential guide to successful pathogen control in the food industry.
