This volume contains monographs on risk assessment of Campylobacter spp.
in broiler chickens that have been prepared and reviewed by an
international team of scientists. During their preparation input was
received from several international fora including two expert
consultations and the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene as well as via peer
review. This assessment compared the risk for a variety of scenarios and
mitigation measures for control of the organism in a range of broiler
chicken products. It also includes a reviews and analysis of current
scientific information and a description of the risk model. This volume
and others in this Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain
information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers,
including international scientific committees, the Codex Alimentarius
Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food
producers and industries and other people or institutions with an interest
in the area of microbiological hazards in foods, their impact on human
health and food trade and their control.
