Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Meat and poultry meat has frequently been associated with the transmission of foodborne pathogens, such as Salmonella and Campylobacter, among others. In order to prevent and control foodborne pathogens, biosecurity measures could play an important role.
Biosecurity is a set of preventative measures implemented to reduce the risk of transmission of infectious disease from reservoirs of the infectious agent to the target host (EFSA 2011).
Implementation of high levels of biosecurity at all stages of animal production and along the food chain is of great interest in order to reduce the incidence of foodborne diseases. Moreover, improvement in biosecurity could help to reduce veterinary drug use, and the consequent problems associated with antibiotics residues.
This Special Issue will discuss the role of biosecurity in food safety and the efficacy of biosecurity measures in the control of foodborne pathogens in meat and poultry production.
