An update to the landmark guide to food-borne diseases and how to prevent them.It is estimated that more than 75 million food-related illnesses are recorded in the United States alone each year, resulting from a variety of causes from undercooked fast-food hamburgers to chicken contaminated with salmonella. Food safety has become a daily concern. Today there are added worries due to increased potential for food contamination on the global market, the prospect of terrorism against the food supply, and the lack of adequate regulation of food products and handling. Written by renowned food expert Morton Satin, Food Alert!, Second Edition provides an up-to-date and comprehensive examination of the causes, dangers, and prevention of food-borne diseases.New and updated topics include:

  • The deficiencies of modern food handling that allow germs and bacteria to thrive
  • Protection and prevention from exposure to food-borne illnesses
  • Immediate steps one should take if food poisoning strikes
  • Precautions against food-borne illnesses abroad
  • The 20 most common causes of food-borne illnesses in the kitchen
  • How food is grown, processed, packaged, handled, and stored before it reaches consumers
  • The latest technologies and practices designed to make food safe
  • Large, multistate food-borne disease outbreaks
  • Increasingly complex food labeling
  • The growing threat of bioterrorism
  • New cases of food-borne illness and disease
  • New government, industry, and consumer advocacy initiatives
  • Up-to-date information on inadequate reporting of food-borne disease incidents.

Other invaluable features include a special reference section covering all of the potentially dangerous diseases and bacteria caused by food; an appendix of food-borne illnesses by symptom; and helpful resources such as organizations, periodicals, and Web sites.
