In recent years, an increase in the number of cases of food-borne illnesses linked to fresh vegetables has been reported. One of the causative agents of these infections is Cryptosporidium and it appears that one route of transmission to humans is food-borne, so fruits and vegetables have important roles. The goal of this study was to determine the level of Cryptosporidium contamination in vegetable farms around Tehran, Iran. A total of 496 samples from 115 vegetable farms in different regions… Expand
Contamination of Cryptosporidium spp. Oocysts in Raw Vegetables Produced in Koya City, Iraq
TLDR
If the proper washing as well as disinfecting actions are neglected before consumption of the vegetables, consumption of raw vegetables could be potentially hazardous, inducing Cryptosporidium infection in Iraqi people. Expand
The effect of water source and soil supplementation on parasite contamination in organic vegetable gardens.
TLDR
The results expose some critical contamination points, providing support for training farmers on good management practices during the production process, and demonstrating greater probability of positive samples for T. gondii and for at least one of the three protozoa when the source of irrigation water was the river. Expand
Detection methods and prevalence of transmission stages of Toxoplasma gondii, Giardia duodenalis and Cryptosporidium spp. in fresh vegetables: a review
TLDR
This non-exhaustive review aims to evaluate studies carried out on five types of vegetables since 2000, particularly the methods used for recovery, concentration, detection and identification of protozoan parasites such as Toxoplasma gondii, Giardia duodenalis and Cryptosporidium spp. Expand
Contribution of environmental media to cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis prevalence in Tehran: a focus on surface waters
TLDR
Monitoring of surface waters in Tehran suggested that untreated surface waters may be a potential route of human exposure to protozoan parasites and a significant correlation between Giardia and Cryptosporidium densities confirms the common sources of pollution in surface waters. Expand
Tracing of Selected Viral, Bacterial, and Parasitic Agents on Vegetables and Herbs Originating from Farms and Markets.
TLDR
This study provides valuable information on the microbiological quality of raw vegetables and herbs available from Czech markets and farms and suggests that good hygienic practices aimed at reducing the incidence of pathogenic agents on fresh produce should not be neglected. Expand
Seasonal study of parasitic contamination in fresh salad vegetables marketed in Shahrekord, Iran
TLDR
The results indicate the potential hazard of unwashed and pre-washed salad vegetables in transmission of parasites to humans, and also show the importance of proper washing before preparation of salads. Expand
Detection of Parasitic Contamination in Ready to Eat Fresh Packaged Herbs Sold in Tehran, Iran
TLDR
Evaluating the parasitic contamination in fresh ready-to-eat packaged herbs from one of major manufacturers of this kind of product in Tehran, Iran found no evidence of parasitic contamination. Expand
Detection of human intestinal protozoan parasites in vegetables and fruits: a review
TLDR
This paper reviewed the contamination and detection methods of human pathogenic intestinal protozoans that are frequently recovered from raw vegetables and fruits and the protozoan parasites include Cryptosporidium, Giardia duodenalis and Enterocytozoon bieneusi. Expand
An overview of methods/techniques for the detection of Cryptosporidium in food samples
TLDR
The methods that are currently being used for the detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts in food material and all of the other available published methods are discussed in this review. Expand

TLDR
Control strategies should be based on the education of the consumers, farmers and shepherds, the improvement of farming conditions, the development of more sensitive methods to detect these parasites in slaughtered animals and in foodstuff, a control of sewage sludge on pastures and of drinking water resources.
