An overview of farm-to-fork safety in the preharvest realm

Foodborne outbreaks continue to take lives and harm economies, making controlling the entry of pathogensinto the food supply a priority. Preharvest factors have been the cause of numerous outbreaks, includingListeria in melons, Salmonella associated with tomatoes, and Shiga toxin-producing E.coli in beef products,yet most traditional control measures and regulations occur at the postharvest stage.
