Special Issue in Microorganisms: An Update on Listeria monocytogenes
In order to evaluate microbiological risk, knowledge of food consumption patterns is essential. Food consumption data is often taken from food consumption surveys designed to obtain epidemiological data on risk factors for chronic diseases or nutritional intake. In the last several years, changes in food consumption patterns have been observed (a preference for raw foods, RTE foods…). It will be of great interest to obtain data on consumption of ready to eat foods (RTE) and the consumption of raw milk or raw fish, among others, especially in high risk populations. On other hand, storage time-temperature, cooking preferences, handling and preparation of foods play an important role in food safety.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present research on the effect of food consumption patterns and food handling and preparation at consumer level on microbiological food safety. Original research articles, as well as review articles, are invited.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
