Abstract:

The routine acquisition and archiving of microbiological data is undertaken for two reasons. The first is the development of historical microbiological profiles of foods, ingredients, or processes in order to determine or verify that microorganisms of concern are being controlled to the level desired. The second reason is data concerning the pathogenicity or virulence of foodborne pathogens and their behavior in foods in order to develop strategies and criteria for assuring microbiological safety. Both types of microbiological data are essential to effective food safety programs. A firm understanding of the uses and limitations of both is essential to correct acquisition, interpretation, and use of such data.
