There are many opportunities for food contamination to take place as todays food supply is complex and involves a range of different stages including on-farm production, harvesting, processing, storage, transport and distribution before the food reaches the consumers. Accordingly, everyone along the production chain, from producer to the consumer, has a role to play to ensure the food we eat does not cause diseases.
The Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration of the United States identified four priority pathogens that it believes are responsible for about 21% of foodborne illnesses, 56% of related hospitalizations and 54% of deaths related annually in the USA. These are Salmonella, E-coli, Listeria monocyogenes and Campylobacter. The portfolio of SmartCHEK ™ foodborne pathogen kits cover these major foodborne pathogenes
