The incidence of acute episodes of intestinal infectious diseases in the United States was estimated through analysis of community-based studies and national interview surveys. Their differing results were reconciled by adjusting the study population age distributions in the community-based studies, by excluding those cases that also showed respiratory(More)
Human listeriosis has been associated with consumption of food including seafood. Surveillance information on the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in seafood products is presented as a background for steps that are being taken to inform risk managers of risks associated with particular food products. United States policy for L. monocytogenes in food has(More)
This paper examines the role that the microbiologist and microbiological testing play in implementing hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) programs. HACCP offers a more comprehensive and science-based alternative for controlling food safety hazards compared with traditional sanitation programs based upon good manufacturing practices.(More)
The present official first action method for the isolation of light filth from fig and fruit paste, 44.083(a), occasionally yields excessive plant debris on filter papers, which causes difficulty in effectively counting insect filth. The proposed method provides the option of an additional flotation of trapped off material in a Corning percolator. This(More)
A method has been developed for the isolation of light filth from food breadings. The method involves a detergent boil, wet sieving, and flotation in an acid-alcohol, mineral oil flotation system in a Corning percolator. Collaborative studies resulted in clean filter papers and acceptable recoveries of added rodent hairs and insect fragments. The method has(More)
Adult stored product beetle mandibles were used as a subject for this scanning electron microscopic study. A total of 34 species are represented. Discussion is organized taxonomically by family, and comparisons are made between species where possible. Established terminology for morphological processes has been applied to all characteristics of mandibles(More)
