This issue explores existing knowledge and unanswered questions on the nature and extent of food-borne threats to health. The book discusses the globalization of the U.S. food supply and the burden of illness associated with foodborne threats to health; considered the spectrum of food-borne threats as well as illustrative case studies; reviewed existing research, policies, and practices to prevent and mitigate foodborne threats; and, identified opportunities to reduce future threats to the nation’s food supply through the use of a “One Health” approach to food safety.
