Book Description :

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. Provides a summary of the

Book Description :

Understanding the relative public health impact of major microbiological hazards across the food supply is critical for a risk-based national food safety system. This chapter presents a systematic national assessment of which pathogens in which foods cause the greatest disease burden in the United States. Estimates of public health impact using integrated measures such as cost of illness and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) incorporate long-term health outcomes excluded from acute disease incidence estimates and allow for comparison of diseases with different symptoms and severities. Attributing the proportion of illnesses due to each pathogen to food sources enables estimation of the annual disease burden of pathogen/food pairs. The chapter includes an overview of methods of foodborne illness source attribution, attribution derived from 10 years of outbreak data, an evaluation of outbreak attribution applicability, and a ranking of pathogen/food pairs based on both outbreak attribution and an expert elicitation.

Book Description :

Microbial food safety risk assessment is a systematic approach to aid our understanding of complex food systems and to translate the potential presence of pathogens in the food production, processing, and preparation environments into statements of the likelihood and magnitude of a food safety risk, in terms of adverse public health outcomes. The Codex Alimentarius Commission, the international body responsible for defining risk assessment principles and practices for all foodborne hazards, endorses a framework for risk assessment that provides a structured format and process for MRA. However, this guidance is not intended to be prescriptive but allows for different approaches and the use of novel analytical tools for assessing risk, to translate scientific data and knowledge into practical information to better inform managers and decision-makers when dealing with the many challenges that arise in the complex field of food safety.

Book Description :

Rotavirus is the leading cause of severe childhood diarrhea worldwide. Person-to-person spread is the most common mode of transmission, and foodborne disease and outbreaks are infrequently associated with rotavirus. In the United States, rotavirus is thought to cause less than 1% of all foodborne illness, with an estimated 15,433 cases of gastroenteritis and 34 hospitalizations being associated with foodborne rotavirus infections annually. Still, the economic burden of foodborne rotavirus disease is approximately $18 million in direct health care costs and lost productivity. As is the case with other viral outbreaks associated with food, most foodborne rotavirus illness arises from contamination by an infected food handler. Thus, adherence to strict hygienic rules, along all levels of the farm-to-fork continuum, is essential to curtail rotavirus food contamination. Two recently introduced childhood vaccines have resulted in reduced transmission of rotavirus in the community, leading to a decline of rotavirus disease among unvaccinated older children and adults (herd immunity), and thus may also decrease the burden of foodborne rotavirus disease.

Book Description :

Streptococci (specifically, Lancefield group A streptococci, or Streptococcus pyogenes) are among the most common bacterial causes of pharyngitis. The microorganism is generally transmitted by respiratory droplets, fomites, or direct contact with infected skin lesions. However, streptococci can also be transmitted by food, with infected persons developing signs and symptoms of pharyngitis; CDC has estimated that there are over 10,000 such cases annually in the United States. In reported outbreaks infected food handlers have generally been the source of contamination, and there is often a history of poor or inadequate refrigeration of the implicated food. While recent foodborne outbreaks have been primarily associated with group A streptococci, illness has also been associated with group C and G strains, and there are suggestions that strains in other Lancefield groups can be transmitted by food or animal contact.

Book Description :

Staphylococcal food poisoning is one of the most prevalent foodborne diseases worldwide. It is caused by the ingestion of food containing preformed toxins (staphylococcal enterotoxins [SEs]) produced mainly by enterotoxigenic Staphylococcus aureus. SEs are potent superantigens, but staphylococcal food poisoning is caused by the emetic activity they also show. Humans and other animals are the primary reservoirs of the microorganism. S. aureus is highly resistant to environmental conditions, being able to grow and produce staphylococcal enterotoxins at low water activity; it is not a good competitor. Food processing plants may be colonized if GMP or GHP are not in place.

Book Description :

Clostridium perfringens is a leading cause of foodborne illness, though cases are widely under-reported because of the mild nature of the gastrointestinal illness, which consists of diarrhea and abdominal cramps. These appear 8–24 hours following ingestion of large numbers of vegetative cells in temperature-abused protein foods, typically meat and poultry. Cells sporulate in the small intestine, producing an enterotoxin. The ability of C. perfringens to grow at elevated temperatures, produce spores, and reproduce rapidly contributes to its role as an important cause of foodborne illness.

Book Description :

Estimating the human health impact of foodborne disease is a complex task; it requires data from many sources and relies on many assumptions. Using data from surveillance, surveys, and other sources, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that major known pathogens and unspecified agents transmitted by food result in an estimated 47.8 million illnesses, 127,839 hospitalizations, and 3037 deaths each year in the United States. Several other countries have estimated foodborne disease burden using various measures, including disease incidence, the numbers of persons with sequelae of foodborne infections, and economic costs. In 2007, the World Health Organization launched an initiative to estimate the global burden of foodborne disease as an advocacy tool for food safety policy. Estimating the burden of foodborne disease can assist with policy formation and evaluation of the effect of interventions.

Book Description :

Human noroviruses are a major cause of gastroenteritis outbreaks worldwide and are the most common cause of foodborne disease outbreaks. Moreover, they are significant contributors to severe childhood diarrhea in developing nations. Norovirus outbreaks are extremely challenging to control for multiple reasons: They are (i) highly contagious and spread through multiple routes of transmission including person-to-person and upon exposure to contaminated food, water, fomites, or aerosolized vomitus particles; (ii) extremely stable in the environment; (iii) resistant to many common disinfectants and food processing techniques; (iv) shed from symptomatically and asymptomatically infected persons for prolonged periods; and (v) infectious at low doses. Common sources of norovirus outbreaks include contaminated shellfish, produce, ready-to-eat (RTE) foods, and water. Norovirus contamination can occur at most any step in the food chain from cultivation to preparation. Research efforts to develop effective methods to inactivate noroviruses, enhanced norovirus diagnostics, and norovirus therapeutics and vaccines are all of high priority.

Book Description :

The size and complexity of the food industry’s transportation, retail, and food service sectors are immense. Over 16 million Americans are employed in over 1 million retail establishments nationwide, contributing more than $1 trillion to the US economy every year. Similar to growers and food manufacturers, food employees working in food transit, food service, and retail food establishments have a responsibility to use proper food handling practices that reduce foodborne illness risks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified five key risk factors that contribute to foodborne illness. These include obtaining food from unsafe sources, poor personal hygiene, inadequate cooking, improper holding of food, and contaminated food surfaces and equipment. Results of studies that have evaluated risk in transportation, retail, and food service operations correlate well with the CDC risk factors. As a result, effective food safety programs must actively control risk by employing time/temperature control, good personal hygiene, cross-contamination control, and effective cleaning/sanitizing programs. Education and changing behavior of food employees are the most important prerequisites for successful risk reduction.

Book Description :

Bacillus cereus is a gram-positive, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacterium that has the ability to grow at a variety of temperatures and pH. Two types of illnesses arise as a result of consumption of food contaminated with B. cereus, emetic and diarrheal. The emetic syndrome is usually associated with starchy foods such as fried rice, pasta, etc. The illness is caused due to the ingestion of a pre-formed toxin in food (i.e., intoxication). The diarrheal syndrome, on the other hand, is associated with other types of foods such as milk, salads, and meat. Unlike the emetic syndrome, the diarrheal illness is caused by ingesting a large number of bacterial cells (i.e., toxico-infection). Healthy individuals usually recover from B. cereus illness within a day or two but patients who have other health issues might suffer serious complications. To control this bacterium in food, proper cooking and rapid cooling are required to prevent spores from germinating.

Book Description :

Science-based, preventive regulation was slow in coming to food law. It took more than half a century from the development of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) in the 1950s for Congress to direct the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to apply comprehensive, science-based, preventive controls across the food supply. Full implementation will likely take several years, but the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) signed into law on January 4, 2011, provides FDA with a mandate to shift the focus of the FDA from primarily reacting to food safety problems to prevention. This chapter summarizes the evolution of science-based risk control systems into food regulation in the United States beginning with the development of HACCP and finishing with enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act. Key points of the HACCP regulation for seafood, meats and poultry, juices, and FSMA risk control plans are covered. Finally, the chapter provides advice on compliance with these control systems.

Book Description :

Seafood consumption is the leading cause of foodborne illness with known etiology. It is anticipated that the number of cases will continue to rise over the next decade with shifting preferences to heart-healthy diets, increased travel to coastal destinations, increased consumption of imported fish, the growth of coastal urban communities, and growing segments of the population involved in marine recreation. The greatest seafood intoxication risks in the United States today are ciguatera fish poisoning (CFP), diarrheic shellfish poisoning (DSP), neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP), paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP), puffer fish poisoning, and scombroid fish poisoning. Effective prevention, early diagnosis, symptom management, and case reporting of these illnesses are important to mitigate the potential impact from some of the most potent naturally occurring toxins known to date.

Book Description :

Risk-based food safety systems are comprehensive approaches that are used by governments or private parties in assuring food safety. They represent the next step after risk analysis in developing best practices for managing the process of food safety assurance. This chapter uses the risk-based system published in Enhancing Food Safety: The Role of the Food and Drug Administration (IOM/NRC, 2010) as scaffolding to discuss the elements of these systems, particularly as they can be used by governments. Risk-based systems include overall strategic planning, risk ranking based on public health, and risk prioritization through targeted information gathering and consideration of other factors that influence priorities. They also include steps for analysis and selection of interventions, design of intervention plans, and monitoring and review. Use of the risk-based system faces several challenges, including the development of an integrated information infrastructure with surveillance, food, behavioral, and economic data, and the building of new analytic capabilities.

Book Description :

As the consequences of yersiniosis are severe and might include prolonged acute infections, pseudoappendicitis, and long-term sequelae such as reactive arthritis, the financial and public health effects of yersiniosis are of greater magnitude than the actual number of cases would suggest. Yersinia enterocolitica is a zoonotic bacterium that has its main reservoir within the domestic pig population. Accordingly, interventions in the meat chain are essential for protection of consumers against infection with pathogenic Y. enterocolitica. Bio/serotypes 4/O:3 and 2/O:9 are probably examples of pathogens causing a global pandemic due to export of pigs and pork from Europe to America and Asia. Some of the preventive measures against Y. enterocolitica are also valid against Y. pseudotuberculosis, in particular measures regarding vegetables, water, personal and kitchen hygiene, and animal contact.
