The Compendium of Methods for the Microbiological Examination of Foods, now in its new, 4th Edition, is the all-inclusive reference for anyone involved in the dynamic fields of processing and testing the safety and quality of foods. Food-borne illnesses comprise a significant public health problem, striking 76 million Americans yearly and killing 5,000, according to estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. APHA's Compendium is the authority for food safety testing. The Compendium presents a comprehensive selection of proven testing methods with an emphasis on accuracy, relevance, and reliability. More than 200 experts have reviewed and updated the 64 chapters in this new edition. New material included on meats and meat products. Contents include: general laboratory procedures, including laboratory quality assurance, environmental monitoring procedures, sampling plans, sample collection, shipment, and preparation for analysis; microorganisms involved in processing and spoilage of foods; foods and the microorganisms involved in their safety and quality; indicator microorganisms and pathogens, microorganisms and food safety: foodborne illness; preparation of microbiological materials-media, reagents, and stains; and much more.
General laboratory procedures; special procedure; microorganisms involved in processing and spoilage of foods; indicator microorganisms and pathogens; rapid methods; food safety: foodborne illness; foods and their safety and quality.

The increased emphasis on food safety during the past two decades has decreased the emphasis on the loss of food through spoilage, particularly in developed co- tries where food is more abundant. In these countries spoilage is a commercial issue that affects the pro?t or loss of producers and manufacturers. In lesser developed countries spoilage continues to be a major concern. The amount of food lost to spoilage is not known. As will be evident in this text, stability and the type of spoilage are in?uenced by the inherent properties of the food and many other factors. During the Second World War a major effort was given to developing the te- nologies needed to ship foods to different regions of the world without spoilage. The food was essential to the military and to populations in countries that could not provide for themselves. Since then, progress has been made in improved product formulations, processing, packaging, and distribution systems. New products have continued to evolve, but for many new perishable foods product stability continues to be a limiting factor. Many new products have failed to reach the marketplace because of spoilage issues.
