Experts create models to assess Listeria risks in some foods

Scientists have developed formal risk assessment models for Listeria monocytogenes in certain foods.

The models need to be tested and reviewed before being made public, said experts at a meeting organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.

Findings come from a Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meeting on Microbial Risk Assessment (JEMRA) of Listeria monocytogenes in foods in October. The focus was on leafy greens, frozen vegetables, cantaloupe, and ready-to-eat (RTE) seafood. A summary has been released but a full report will be published later as part of the FAO and WHO Microbiological Risk Assessment (MRA) series.

Outbreaks of listeriosis continue to occur globally, with some linked to previously unreported food vehicles, such as leafy greens, melons, frozen vegetables, and ready-to-eat fish.

Data needed for models

Following recommendations from JEMRA in 2021, Codex — an organization that determines international food safety … Read more

As The Menu, director Mark Mylod’s chilling send-up of the world of exclusive fine dining, hurtled toward its dramatic ending, something in my brain broke. After almost two hours of being completely terrified — Ralph Fiennes is cold and chilling as chef Julian Slowik, an egomaniac driven to violence by his obsession with culinary perfection at his restaurant Hawthorne — I started laughing uncontrollably. (Note: Major spoilers for the ending ahead.)

Finally, after torturing his guests and letting the woman he sexually harassed stab him in the leg, chef Julian’s vision becomes painfully funny. As his diners watch on in horror, kitchen staffers artfully scatter the restaurant’s dining room with graham cracker crumbs and various sauces. And … Read more
