Foodborne Infections and Intoxications, 5th edition brings together up-to-date, relevant interdisciplinary expertise of 70 authors presenting foodborne disease pathogens and toxins, microbiology, disease diagnosis and treatment, epidemiology, and disease prevention in the context of public health and food safety regulation. Beginning with the estimation of foodborne disease burden at the international scale, this book dives deep in foodborne disease outbreak investigation, food safety risk assessment, and molecular analysis, together with detailed descriptions of the major bacteria, viruses, parasites, and toxins associated with foodborne illness. This new edition also emphasizes development of risk-based approaches to food safety and safety regulation implementation.

This book is a valuable scientific resource for understanding causes and management of foodborne diseases. The new edition offers the latest knowledge and updates on foodborne infections and intoxications and food safety for multiple generations of students, investigators, public health workers, food scientists, and food safety practitioners.

Key Features

  • Covers all major foodborne pathogens and toxins, and new emerging pathogens
  • Includes newly updated information on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and other regulatory approaches to food safety

J. Glenn Morris, Jr.

Dr. J. Glenn Morris is a physician epidemiologist with board certification in both internal medicine and infectious diseases. Morris started his public health career at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where he was an Epidemic Intelligence Service officer with responsibility for national foodborne disease surveillance. He was on the faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine for 24 years, where he served as Chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine; he currently directs the Emerging Pathogens Institute at the University of Florida. He has served on four National Academy of Sciences expert committees dealing with food safety and was a member of the National Academy’s Food and Nutrition Board. In the mid-1990s, he worked with the Food Safety Inspection Service in the U.S. Department of Agriculture on the first major revision of food safety regulations since 1906 and has continued to work on scientific and regulatory approaches to control of foodborne diseases.
