Abstract:Despite increased education and legislation to raise standards of hygiene in all aspects of food handling, a definite increase is reported in food-borne infections and intoxications in the UK. The main bacteria are examined here and, since it is envisaged that the number of reported cases is likely to increase still further in future years, recommendations are put forward which are aimed at improved education rather than legislation.
