The European Food Safety Authority’s European Scientific Network on Microbiological Risk Assessment recently convened for its 22nd meeting to discuss various national efforts related to microbial food safety hazards such as prevalent foodborne pathogens, mycotoxins, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and other risks.
A recent case study from the Sapienza University of Rome examined the surveillance of foodborne pathogens through a One Health lens in Europe, with a specific focus on the One Health European Joint Program (OHEJP) MATRIX Project framework.
A recent study is the first to track foodborne pathogens from specific pigs and their associated pork products at all points in the supply chain, from the farm to retail stores. The antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of the pathogens was also evaluated.
The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) has released its first Science and Technology Advisory Group (STAG) Report, which focuses on four themes impacting food safety: “Big Data,” the role of the microbiome, emerging foodborne pathogens, and food system resilience.
The Center for Produce Safety (CPS) has funded 14 new research projects that will help answer the fresh produce industry’s most urgent food safety questions related to leafy greens, stone fruit, pears, foodborne pathogens, indoor farming, and other topics.
The study focused on developing and testing a computer model that has the potential to pinpoint locations in a food manufacturing facility where Lm might be found.

New research funded in part by the Frozen Food Foundation, a non-profit arm of American Frozen Food Institute, Arlington, Va., reveals a possible solution for controlling Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) in food manufacturing facilities.
The processed food segment contributed about one-third share of the total market in 2017, and will continue to maintain its dominance through 2025.
