Reviews on spoilage microorganisms and their control


The FRI Food Safety Reviews are summaries of current scientific literature, focusing on special topics of current interest. These reviews replace the extensive annual food safety literature survey formerly published by FRI, and now number more than 30 since inception of the Briefings in 1996.

The most recent review, "White Paper: Public Health Impact of Multi-Drug Resistant Pathogens," was released in July 2014 and is currently available only to FRI sponsors. Please contact Kathy Glass for access codes.
