Food safety concerns have become a crucial public health issue. Perhaps most alarming of these is the questionable safety of many imported foods. As the market for food becomes increasingly global and our population clamors for more fresh produce and uncooked ready-to-eat foods, the microbiological risks of imported food have dramatically increased. Imported Foods: Microbiological Issues and Challenges brings together the most up-to-date and in-depth information on microbiological food safety. This volume not only describes the problems with imported foods but also suggests specific programs and steps to improve the monitoring and safety of imported foods. Following the success of the five previous volumes on food safety, Imported Foods provides a thorough explanation of the challenges and solutions to this emerging crisis. Authors explain the systematic risks inherent in food production in developing countries, the current U.S. food safety system, newly acquired food-borne pathogens, and recommendations for systematic changes to the monitoring of imported food. Throughout this volume, the authors emphasize proven concepts of microbial risk analysis and practical methods to address this growing public health concern. Explaining the latest scientific information on imported food safety issues, this volume will be a valuable resource for food safety professionals who are at the leading edge of this growing problem in American public health.
