Food Poisoning and Food Hygiene, 6Ed Summary


Food Poisoning and Food Hygiene, 6Ed by Betty C. Hobbs

Fully revised and updated, the sixth edition of Food Poisoning and Food Hygiene provides an indispensable handbook for professionals involved in the preparation, processing or retailing of food, as well as for scientists and environmental health officers. Causes of food poisoning are explained clearly, and measures which can be taken to reduce the risk of foodborne illness, based on an understanding of the behaviour of microbiological organisms, are described in detail. Since the publication of the fifth edition, there has been increasing concern for the safety of food. This new edition takes account of all the resulting food legislation including the Food Safety Act 1990 and many new EC directives relating to food safety. Case studies provide excellent illustrations of the route of recent outbreaks.
