Abstract

Some microorganisms, previously thought to be innocuous, have been linked to life-threatening diseases after acquiring new virulence factors as well as high antimicrobial resistance levels. Efforts to improve rapid and effective laboratory procedures for the search, isolation and identification of pathogenic microorganisms are needed. Research is also required to support hazard analysis critical control points (HACCP) criteria implementation and application in the food production, processing and distribution. The 6th International Symposium Containment of Food-Transmitted Risks Presented by Emerging Pathogens held on April 15th, 1997, provided an opportunity for a meeting of some of the leading European scientists in the field of food microbiology, with the aim to improve common initiatives and strategies.
