Background notes

1. This site will be update on publication of the new The Microbiology of Safe Food, 3rd Edition to be released later in 2019. Areas which have been modified for the new version include:

  1. Advances in genomic analysis techniques for key organisms, including E. coli, Salmonella, and L. monocytogenes
  2. Emerging information on high-throughput sequencing and genomic epidemiology based on genomic analysis of isolates
  3. Recent work on investigations into foodborne infection outbreaks, demonstrating the public health costs of unsafe food production
  4. Updates to the national and international surveillance systems, including social media

2. My apologies for the delay in the publication of the 3rd Edition of The Microbiology of Safe Food. I had started preparing it for several years ago, but my personal research on the emergent pathogen Cronobacter and other causes of neonatal infections took precedence; see Research for details.

3. The Brazilian Portuguese version of the 'The Microbiology of Safe Food' has been released and the Spanish version came out in 2003. Meanwhile the Spanish version of my book 'Food Hygiene, Microbiology and HACCP' with Pat Hayes has been released by Acribia
