About this Book

While presenting the latest scientific research on the major pathogens associated with meat, poultry, produce, and other foods, Pre-Harvest and Post-Harvest Food Safety: Contemporary Issues and Future Directions goes beyond other professional reference books by identifying the research needed to assure food safety in the future. The editors and authors not only review the current, cutting-edge literature in each of their areas, but provide insights and forward thinking into the development of new and innovative approaches and research strategies. Scientists and researchers from academia, government, and industry have collaborated to examine the high-priority food safety areas recognized by the federal government: pathogen/host interactions; ecology, distribution and spread of foodborne hazards; antibiotic resistance; verification tests; decontamination and prevention strategies; and risk analysis. A worthy new edition to the IFT Press series of food science and technology titles, Pre-Harvest and Post-Harvest Food Safety describes what we now know in food safety and provides a framework and focus for future research to improve diagnostic capabilities and intervention strategies for enteropathogens.
