Preharvest and Postharvest Food Safety. IFT Press and Blackwell Publishing. p. 161-l7l. Technical Abstract: The environment serves as a source and sink for microbial pathogens that are significant to the food industry. The fate and persistence of pathogens in various environments such as water, bioaerosols, and soil sediments can have a profound impact on the potential of these organisms to become food safety hazards. This chapter deals with the fate and transport of microbial pathogens within environmental reservoirs.
