Food Safety Assurance in the Pre-Harvest Phase
edited by F. J. M. Smulders

Food Safety Assurance in the Pre-Harvest Phase addresses the following areas:

  • factors related to the food animal environment (industrial activity in the immediate production surroundings leading to microbiological or chemical contamination)
  • epidemiological factors resulting from intrinsic characteristics of classical and emerging microorganisms
  • chemical pollution
