about this item

Redman, a writer and former librarian, and Morrone, a professor of environmental health science, provide a revised edition of their resource on food safety. It outlines the regulatory history of the food industry, the most common foodborne illnesses, food safety management systems, outbreak investigations, international food safety, consumer roles, and other food safety threats, including the additives and contaminants aspartame, olestra, acrylamide, benzene, mercury in fish, and polychlorinated biphenyls in salmon, as well as additional problems and controversies like pesticides, growth hormones in cattle, genetically modified organisms, irradiation, antibiotic resistance, pink slime, and raw milk. It provides perspectives from different individuals with experience in food safety (a new chapter in this edition) on topics like food security, genetically engineered salmon, and whole genome sequencing and the food industry; biographical sketches of key people; a list of key organizations; facts and statistics about food safety issues, key writings, and excerpts from food safety reports, laws, and guidance documents; and a chronology.
