New research from Wiley's food science journals

Features: Salmonella Control in Poultry

A PCR-based approach can offer a rapid option for assessing Salmonella contamination in poultry rinsates

Features: Safeguarding Against False Test Results

Salmonella and Campylobacter impact a number of large food industries, forcing the need to deploy testing solutions that ensure the safety of products and the well-being of consumers

Departments: The Salmonella Outbreak in Sushi: A One-Off or Something to Worry About?

Trust in food suppliers and simple product screening may go a long way in ensuring contaminated products don't reach consumers.

Departments: Move Over, Salmonella

You’re not likely to see a picture of Campylobacter in a post office lobby, but as of July 2011, the FSIS has introduced a new performance standard to reduce the prevalence of Campylobacter, similar to the one used for Salmonella for years.

Departments: On the Trail of Salmonella

Of all foodborne pathogens, Salmonella is one of the most difficult to isolate because of its homogeneity. Strains like Salmonella enteritidis and Salmonella Montevideo are, genetically speaking, almost indistinguishable from one another using conventional tools of forensic microbiology.

Departments: Track & Trace

What’s scarier than a contamination event? Not properly planning for reporting to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when your product is involved in one. Fortunately, compliance with the FDA Reportable Food Registry (RFR) is easier than you think.

Departments: Novel Approaches to Pathogen Control

A series of recent incidents involving pathogens in peanut butter, ground beef, and chicken products has forced the food industry to recognize the continuing need for technological means of ensuring the biological integrity of food supplies.

Columns: Let Your Voice Be Heard

Fulfilling another key recommendation of the president’s Food Safety Working Group, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced new performance standards to reduce Salmonella and Campylobacter in young chickens (broilers) and turkeys. The new standards, which are expected to prevent tens of thousands of illnesses yearly, represent the most significant food safety development from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 15 years. The USDA has cut the target levels for Salmonella in poultry by...

News: Study Sheds Light on Salmonella

New research from the Volcani Center in Israel reveals that the pathogenic bacteria Salmonella enterica can sense, swim toward, and enter open stomata in a lettuce leaf during photosynthesis. The discovery, published in the October issue of Applied and Environmental Microbiology, has important implications for food safety and may partially explain why it’s so difficult to prevent outbreaks of foodborne illness by disinfecting fresh produce.
