Description

Recently there has been a growing awareness of the need to conduct sound and inclusive interdisciplinary research in key academic and applied areas. Interdisciplinary Food Safety Research answers the increasing calls to better understand and analyze the impact of food safety efforts. By collecting a wide range of multidisciplinary examples, the text identifies important areas of research while providing a resource for future group-building activities.

Topics covered include:

  • Food research safety teams

  • E. coli contamination in a beef slaughterhouse

  • Costs of pathogen reduction strategies for Australian beef slaughter plants

  • Food safety and quality assurance in the food chain

  • Phytosanitary barriers to trade

  • Food safety issues in developing nations

  • Product liability and food safety

  • Consumer acceptance of irradiated meats

  • Food safety control for retail butchers

  • Bases of food safety concerns

  • Future needs

    This book encourages comprehensive research by recognizing significant early efforts and considers a range of food safety problems, research techniques, and solutions. The use of global examples and interdisciplinary team-based reports, along with information from the fields of academia, government, and industry, makes Interdisciplinary Food Safety Research an important resource for enhancing the safety of our food supply.

  • Reviews

    "Although much of the book deals with beef, the concept is applicable to all food systems and provides an opportunity for technically oriented food professionals to think out of the box and explore a needed and novel technique to improve food safety. …answers the increasing call to better understand and analyze the impact of food safety efforts by collecting a wide range of multidisciplinary examples. The authors identify important areas of research while providing a resource for future group-building activities employing multidisciplinary techniques."
