Pathogen data sheets

Find links here to MPI’s pathogen data sheets, which give information about the microbial hazards in food and how they are contolled.

Pathogen data sheets give scientific information about the growth, survival and inactivation of pathogens in foods. They also document their reservoirs and sources of contamination, diseases they cause, and how they can be controlled.

You can find further information about MPI’s pathogen data sheets on the Overview page in the left-hand menu.

Below are links to all MPI’s pathogen data sheets. You can also find these and other documents by searching directly in the food safety Industry eLibrary.
