From the Publisher"This 4th revision of the previously successful text is designed to teach the subject of food plant sanitation to an educated audience. It is not intended for individuals with no scientific knowledge. It can be used as an excellent textbook for an undergraduate college level food plant sanitation course. It is written for students who may not have an introductory science background. For example, the authors describe and define microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, mold viruses) and describe typical microbial growth. Because of this basic approach to sanitation, this text could serve students who need knowledge about sanitation but may lack some of the required background, such as restaurant or hotel managers and food service majors. Topics covered include those that are required for a food plant sanitation course: government rules and regulations, biosecurity, microorganisms, food contamination, employee hygiene, HACCP, quality assurance, cleaning and sanitizing, sanitation equipment, pest control, and chapters that cover specific food types (low-moisture food, dairy, meat and poultry, seafood, fruit and vegetables, beverage, food service) and management and sanitation. The topics are well-described and clearly explained. This text could be used to supplement courses that deal with specific topics such as meat science or fruit and vegetable processing. The appropriate chapters could be employed in discussions of sanitation in these facilities. I highly recommend this text."
