According to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), achieving safe and healthier foods is one of the top ten achievements of public health in the 20th century. However, considerable persisting challenges currently exists in developed nations and transition economies for further assuring the safety and security of the food chain. According to CDC estimates, as many as 3000 American adults, as an example, and based on a recent epidemiological estimate of the World Health Organization, around 420,000 individuals around the globe, lose their lives every year due to foodborne diseases. This emphasizes the need for innovative and emerging interventions, for further prevention or mitigation of the risk of foodborne microbial pathogens during food processing and manufacturing.
The current Special Issue will publish recent advancements and progress in the elimination and decontamination of microbial pathogens during various stages of manufacturing and production. Special emphasis will be placed on hurdle validation studies, investigating decontamination of serovars of non-typhoidal Salmonella, various serogroups of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, public health significant serotypes of Listeria monocytogenes, pathogenic species of Vibrio, and various species of Campylobacter, Cronobacter sakazakii, and Norovirus. Researchers and practitioners conducting original laboratory studies, epidemiological research, and critical review papers are cordially invited to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue of Microorganisms.
