- The problems produced by changes in agricultural and food manufacturing practices, which have resulted in increases in reported cases of foodborne illness, are discussed in relation to Salmonella, Campylobacter jejuni, Clostridium botulinum, Aeromonas hydrophila, Listeria monocytogenes and Yersinia enterocolitica. Those areas where further research is urgently required in order to understand and reduce foodborne microbial illness are examined, and solutions proposed.
