New titles focus on food safety: Fresh produce and tracking contamination

ASM Press announces the first two titles in a new series of books devoted to emerging issues in food safety. Microbiology of Fresh Produce is now available for purchase and Microbial Source Tracking, which prints in December 2006, is now available for pre-order.

In the wake of the E. coli O157:H7 outbreak associated with raw spinach last month, it is more important than ever that scientists and students better understand the issues associated with microorganisms and fresh produce. Edited by Karl R. Matthews of Rutgers University, Microbiology of Fresh Produce presents the latest research and industry practices promoting microbiological safety of fruits and vegetables. This inaugural volume in the new series Emerging Issues in Food Safety examines key issues of microbiological safety of fresh produce, from production to consumption, and focuses on the unique challenges the specialists encounter in controlling microorganisms found on produce.

"Written by experts in the field, the book highlights microorganisms associated with human illness and linked to consumption of contaminated produce," says series editor Michael P. Doyle of the University of Georgia. "This book is ideal for instructors and students in the field of food safety and is a valuable resource for industry and government professionals conducting research on the microbiological safety of fresh fruits and vegetables."

The second volume of the series, Microbial Source Tracking, presents a state-of-the-art review of current technology and applications being utilized to identify sources of fecal contamination in waterways. In addition to serving environmental microbiologists who monitor and seek to improve water quality, this unique new reference will be useful for researchers in the food industry, especially scientists investigating etiological agents responsible for food contamination.

Microbiology of Fresh Produce has a list price of $99.95 and can be purchased through ASM Press
