Chapter 7 (Page no: 59)

Gram-negative bacteria.

This chapter focuses on the Gram-negative bacteria of most concern for foodborne illness. One major distinction from Gram-positive bacteria is that none of these Gram-negative bacteria causes intoxications, and none is a spore former. The bacteria described in this chapter are Campylobacter jejuni, C. coli, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Vibrio spp., and Yersinia spp. The pathogenetic and clinical features of foodborne infections caused by these Gram-negative bacteria, methods for detecting these pathogens in foods, and effective control measures to lower the risk of foodborne illness from each species, are discussed.
