Codex alimentarius by Joint FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission( Book )

16 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One important element of FAO's work is building the capacity of food control personnel, including government authorities and food industry personnel carrying out food quality and safety assurance programs. Such programs should include specific food risk control procedures such as the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system. FAO has prepared this manual in an effort to harmonize the approach to training in the HACCP system based on the already harmonized texts and guidelines of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The manual is structured to provide essential information in a standardized, logical and systematic manner while adhering to effective teaching and learning strategies. It is composed of three sections. Section 1 reviews principles and methods of training; Section 2 introduces and elucidates the Codex Alimentarius General Principles of Food Hygiene; and Section 3 explains the HACCP system and its implementation. Each section is made up of specific training modules.--Publisher's description

Risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens : interpretative summary by OMS( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Campylobacter is a leading cause of enteric infections in many countries. The principal reservoir of pathogenic Campylobacter spp. is the alimentary tract of wild and domesticated mammals and birds. FAO and WHO have undertaken a risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens. An interpretative summary of that work is described in this volume. 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. This volume contains information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers, governments and food regulatory agencies, industry and other people or institutions with an interest in Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens, the public health impact and the use of risk assessment in the evaluation and selection of potential control strategies--Publisher's description
Food labelling by Joint FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Codex Alimentarius (Latin for "food law" or "food code") is a collection of internationally adopted food standards. Food labelling is the primary means of communication between the producer and seller of food on the one hand and the purchaser and consumer on the other. The standards and guidelines on food labelling published in various volumes of the Codex Alimentarius are collected to allow their wide use and understanding by governments, regulatory authorities, food industries and retailers, and consumers. This fourth edition includes additional texts adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission up to 2005

Floods in Bangladesh : history, dynamics and rethinking the role of the Himalayas by Thomas Hofer( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no statistical evidence that the frequency of flooding in Bangladesh has increased during the 20th century. There is indication however, that the inter-annual variation of floods and the areal extent of big events have increased since 1950. Is it really true that deforestation and land use practices of the Himalayan farmers are to blame for the recurring and devastating monsoon floods in the plains of the Ganga and Brahmaputra? This book presents new evidence resulting from a research project on floods in Bangladesh in the context of highland-lowland linkages.--Publisher's description

Hazard characterization for pathogens in food and water : guidelines by World Health Organization( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hazard characterization either as part of a microbiological risk assessment or as a stand-alone process describes the human adverse health effects that may result from ingestion of pathogenic microorganisms. Ideally it will include quantitative information in terms of a dose-response relation and the probability of adverse outcomes. This volume provides guidelines for the characterization of hazards in food and water using a structured six-step approach involving a description of the process of hazard characterization; process initiation; data collection and evaluation; descriptive characteriz

Risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens : technical report by OMS( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Campylobacter is a leading cause of enteric infections in many countries. The principal reservoir of pathogenic Campylobacter spp. is the alimentary tract of wild and domesticated mammals and birds. Poultry meat is an important vehicle for foodborne transmission of Campylobacter spp., particularly Campylobacter jejuni. FAO and WHO have undertaken a risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens as described in this volume. 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 review and analysis of current scientific information and a description of the risk model.--Publisher's description
Marine biotoxins by H. P. van Egmond( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an extensive review of different aspects of five shellfish-poisoning syndromes (paralytic, diarrhoeic, amnesic, neurologic and azapiracid), as well as one fish-poisoning syndrome (ciguatera fish poisoning), and discusses in detail the causative toxins produced by marine organisms, chemical structures and analytical methods of the toxins, habitat and occurrence of the toxin-producing organisms, case studies and existing regulations. Based on this analysis, risk assessments are carried out for each of the toxins, and recommendations are elaborated to improve the management of these risks in order to reduce the harmful effect of these toxins on public health
