Food borne illness is a serious public health threat problem. Today the food processing environment is quite different from that of earlier times. It is common to have food prepared from a mixture of ingredients originated in several countries and to distribute the finished product across the continent. Food is also prepared in much larger batches than before. One of the outcomes of the move to large scale production and distribution of foods is that a problem in one batch in one location can affect people in many provinces and/or states. While intensive farming practices have been linked with the rise of foodborne illnesses in humans, it is interesting to note that the rise has continued even when there has been a shift to less intensive farm production systems.
