Given that microorganisms are everywhere, they naturally appear in plants and animals. A small percentage of these microorganisms are pathogenic and, therefore, require control measures. It could be thought that finding a microbial etiological agent in a food could be very useful. But, maybe, the detection in foods of microorganisms will only be tackled when an outbreak occurs. This book focuses on how to prevent and survive food-borne diseases. (Imprint: Novinka )
