Microbiological Contamination of Homemade Food. Minimizing microbial growth on equipment, by cleaning and sanitizing, and in the product itself by adjusting storage temperature, pH, and other environmental factors. DOI: 10.5772/53170 This article addresses the chemical contamination of foods, as opposed to microbiological contamination, which can be found under foodborne illness.. The most reported causes of foodborne illnesses are of microbiological origin (e.g. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SCIENTIFIC & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH VOLUME 5, ISSUE 03, MARCH 2016 ISSN 2277-8616 `65 IJSTR©2016 www.ijstr.org Microbiological Contamination Of Food: The Mechanisms, Impacts And Prevention Alum, Eucharia Akanele, Urom, Scholastica Mgbo Otu Chukwu, Ben, Chukwu Mary Ahudie Criteria can be developed and applied for different purposes across the food supply chain, with different consequences if the limits are not met.

Compendium of Microbiological Criteria for Food, September 2018 Introduction Microbiological criteria are established to support decision making about a food or process based on microbiological testing. Two different types of criteria are established in Regulation 2073/2005, namely food safety criteria Guideline criteria indicate whether the microbiological status of a food product is within the normal/acceptable range and in this way are alert mechanisms to signal conformance with food safety controls. are adequate. microbial contamination: Inclusion or growth of harmful microorganisms (such as clostridium botulinum) in an item used as food, making it unfit for consumption. Foods for microbiological examination are prepared aseptically to prevent contamination from environment. Microbial contamination happens when a food has been contaminated by microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi, and toxins.
