The diseases and consequences of foodborne pathogenic micro-organisms are of major global importance and concern, with a conservatively estimated 80 million cases of "food poisoning" occurring annually in the western world.

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the organisms responsible for foodborne disease, as well as giving clear, practical guidance to all those involved in its prevention, managment and control. Combining an authoritative text with over 300 illustrations, mainly in four-colour, Dr Varnam's book provides the sound scientific framework necessary for the study and understanding of foodborne disease. It is now reissued in softcover.
