Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of Foods, entitled "Microbiological Safety of Meat Products", is intended to present both the historical developments in meat safety, as well as the current state of knowledge of the subject. Meat safety issues include parasites, bacteria and viruses, and each present unique concerns to public health. In response to these issues, the meat industry has developed a host of control mechanisms, beginning with live animal production and ending with the final preparation before consumption. In addition, regulatory agencies around the world have developed specific guidance for both domestically produced meat, as well as that in international commerce. This special issue of Foods invites manuscript which address all aspects of the microbiological safety of meats.
