Food Control Available online 3 February 2021, Towards a Resilient Food Supply Chain in the Context of Food Safety

Food safety risks to human health can arise from the presence of residues of chemical substances, zoonotic bacteria, viruses, parasites, or physical hazards in our food. According to a recent estimation of the World Health Organization (WHO, 2019), around 600 million (i.e. 1 in 10 people in the world) people become ill every year due to the consumption of contaminated food. Meanwhile, the global food supply chain has been challenged by various food safety incidents or crises, such as the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) crisis in the 1990s, the presence of dioxin in chicken feed in the year 1999, and the recurrent outbreaks of foodborne illnesses due to Salmonella spp. in eggs (Aung & Chang, 2014). 2.

You can access the site here. Weather based risk models for tan spot, Septoria leaf blotch, leaf rust, and scab are available on this site. Simple select the disease of interest and a risk map for the state. The models can predict the risk up two days in advance and you can go back up to 365 days prior. You can also drill down to your area of interest with a simply mouse click on your area of interest. The National Fusarium Head Blight Risk Assessment Tool is also available here. The North Dakota Small Grains Disease Forecasting System has also come online for the 2011 season. ECDC - JULY 2013 - TECHNICAL REPORT - West Nile virus risk assessment tool.

CDC 21/06/12 Influenza Risk Assessment Tool (IRAT)

The Influenza Risk Assessment Tool (IRAT) is an evaluation tool being developed by CDC and external influenza experts that measures the potential pandemic risk posed by influenza A viruses that currently circulate in animals but not in humans. The IRAT makes an assessment of potential pandemic risk based on two different scenarios: “emergence” and “public health impact.”

“Emergence” refers to the risk of a novel (i.e., new in humans) influenza virus acquiring the ability to spread easily and efficiently in people. “Public health impact” refers to the potential severity of human disease caused by the virus (e.g., deaths and hospitalizations) as well as the burden on society (e.g., missed workdays, strain on hospital capacity and resources, and interruption of basic public services) if a novel influenza virus began spreading efficiently and sustainably among people. Can the IRAT predict a future pandemic? No. Top Yes. AGPROFESSIONAL 05/01/14 Fusarium head blight risk assessment tool released. U.S.

Wheat & Barley Scab Initiative | Updated: 05/01/2014 U.S. wheat and barley producers have incurred billions of dollars in economic losses to Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) across the past couple decades. Fortunately, substantial progress has been made in the battle against FHB (commonly referred to as "scab") through the development of moderately resistant varieties, fungicides that can provide good levels of control, and other management practices. Still, these are tools; none is a panacea providing simple and complete protection against scab. So the research - much of which is supported by the U.S. One of the most important management aids currently available is the Fusarium Head Blight Risk Assessment Tool operated by the Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center. Testing has shown the models to be correct about 75% of the time. These commentaries provide ground truth information and real-time observations.
