PROCESSING 10/02/15 Researchers use MRI to study foodborne pathogens Researchers at the University of Maine are to investigate foodborne pathogens, supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The $150,000 grant will fund a study that uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to observe the internalization of foodborne pathogens inside produce. According to the university, this will be the first research of its kind. Internalization of foodborne pathogens is the process by which harmful bacteria move into the edible parts of produce, posing a threat to human health because the bacteria cannot be easily washed away, explained Dr. Vivian Wu, a professor of food science at the university and lead researcher on the project. "Either microorganisms will contaminate a surface of produce — leaves, plants, fruit — but there is another possibility microorganisms can actually internalize, get inside of the plant cell tissues.
The International Desalination & Water Reuse Quarterly industry website 11/11/12 'Superbug' found in US wastewater-reuse plants Researchers at the University of Maryland's School of Public Health (UMSPH) in the USA reported on 5 November 2012 that the "superbug" methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is prevalent at several US wastewater-reuse plants (WWTPs). However, MRSA was found in the final effluent at one only of the four WWTPs studied, and this was at a site that did not use chlorination. MRSA is well known for causing difficult-to-treat and potentially fatal bacterial infections in hospital patients, but since the late 1990s it has also been infecting otherwise healthy people in community settings. Swedish researchers have previously identified the presence of MRSA in WWTPs in Sweden. The research team, including UMSPH and University of Nebraska Medical Center researchers, collected wastewater samples throughout the treatment process at four WWTPs. This was the first study to investigate US wastewater as a potential environmental reservoir of MRSA.

CORNELL UNIVERSITY 04/12/12 Tracing foodborne pathogens on the farm By Krishna Ramanujan In 2011, an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes in cantaloupe led to almost 150 illnesses and 30 deaths. With a spate of recent outbreaks of such foodborne pathogens as Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing E. coli and L. monocytogenes, the ability to predict where and how these deadly microbes enter the food supply chain could save lives and prevent disease. Cornell researchers have created a method that uses geospatial algorithms, foodborne pathogen ecology and Geographic Information System (GIS) tools to predict hot spots where these pathogens may be present and spread on farms prior to harvest. Many of the recent outbreaks of foodborne pathogens have been linked to contamination on the farm. The method, which can be applied to any farm, uses classification tree tools with remotely sensed data, such as topography, soil type, weather trends, proximity to various sources (water, forests) and more, to predict areas where pathogens are likely to be present.

This population requires food products that fulfill the high quality standards established by the food industry organizations. Food shortages threaten human health and are aggravated by the disastrous, extreme climatic events such as floods, droughts, fires, storms connected to climate change, global warming and greenhouse gas emissions that modify the environment and, consequently, the production of foods in the agriculture and husbandry sectors.
