Summary : Recent advances regarding the human foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes are discussed with specific emphasis on epidemiology, ecology and virulence. Recent routine surveillance and outbreak investigation studies indicate a shift in L. monocytogenes serotypes linked to listeriosis in some countries. There is growing evidence to show that L. monocytogenes isolates can ...

Summary : Food handler behaviour is important for producing safe food with food handler error a factor in many outbreaks. This chapter reviews food handler knowledge, attitudes and practices and the research methods used in their study. Infected food handlers spread pathogens to foods and other workers and the factors influencing this ...

Summary : Traditionally, populations of microbes have been characterized rather than individual cells. Methods for examining individual cells have long been available but there were technological barriers. The rapidity and ease of growing microbes to large numbers has limited the motivation to study them individually and terminology reinforced the belief that cell ...

Summary : Current methods for detecting bacterial pathogens from foods and the environment are slow. Although newer, more rapid detection techniques have been developed, they have insufficient sensitivity and produce residual matrix-associated inhibitory compounds. The detection of foodborne pathogens could be more rapid if the target cells were separated and concentrated before ...

Summary : Viruses are common causes of foodborne outbreaks. Viral diseases have low fatality rates but transmission to humans via food is important due to the high probability of consuming fecally contaminated food or water because of poor food handling. Because of the low infectious doses of some foodborne viruses, there is ...

Summary : Omic technologies, including genomics, proteomics and metabolomics, are used to study pathogen behavior at the molecular level and develop improved pathogen detection and typing systems. Omic technologies analyze complete or nearly complete expressions of cell functions. DNA sequencing has resulted in complete genomes of foodborne pathogens. Omic-based technologies explore biological ...

Summary : In this chapter, we endeavour to predict the trends in predictive microbiology that are going to shape its development as a multidisciplinary field. We integrate the most commonly used, population and single-cell models of bacterial kinetics into a top-down framework. We predict that modellers will need to face various complexities ...

Summary : Since the invention of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the 1980s, applied molecular biology has progressed enormously. Following technological advancements, PCR analysis has become quantitative rather than qualitative. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) revolutionized molecular approaches to food safety, due to the ability to quantify specific pathogens in food. New methods ...
