Foodborne Infections and Intoxications book cover

Foodborne Infections and Intoxications

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.

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
