This volume contains monographs on risk assessment of Salmonella in eggs and 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 expert consultations and Codex Alimentarius committee meetings as well as via public and peer review. The monographs in this volume comprise data and methodology relevant to the four steps of risk assessment - hazard identification, exposure assessment, hazard characterization and risk characterization - of Salmonella in eggs and broiler chickens. They include information on the efficacy of some of the possible risk management options for controlling these pathogens in eggs and broiler chickens. This volume and others in the Microbiological Risk Assessment series...

Scope: The Consultation was convened to provide FAO, WHO and their Member States with scientific advice in relation to the assessment of allergenicity in genetically modified foods. This would cover in particular: General consideration of allergenicity of genetically modified foods consideration of allergenicity specifically relevant to genetically modified foods Consideration of the decision-tree approach consideration and possible revision of the decision-tree for the assessment of allergenicity of genetically modified foods developed preliminarily by the June 2000 Joint FAO/WHO Consultation on Foods Derived from Biotechnology. development of standardised procedures for consideration of the use of individual criteria used in the decision tree, with a view to a harmonised application of the decision-tree consideration of the possibility of post market surveillance for...

In continuing their activities on risk assessment of microbiological hazards in foods FAO and WHO convened a joint expert consultation from 30 April to 4 May 2001 at FAO headquarters in Rome. The consultation focused on the finalization of the FAO/WHO risk assessments on Salmonella spp. in eggs and broiler chickens and Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat foods. This report summarizes the outcome of the meeting including the key findings of the above-mentioned risk assessments. It provides a preliminary response to the risk management questions on these pathogens posed by the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene. The report also provides some advice on how these risk assessments can be adapted and used by FAO and WHO member countries.

The manual is meant to provide guidance on the application of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point approach to the prevention and control of mycotoxin contamination of foods and feed. After a brief introduction on the nature of mycotoxins and their effects on human and animal health, the document describes the HACCP system, as defined by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and takes the reader through a series of illustrative examples (six) which show how the HACCP approach can be applied to prevent and control mycotoxin contamination. The examples include: Yellow maize kernals; maize-based animal feed; copra cake and meal; commercially produced peanut butter; apple juice; and pistachio nuts.
