about

Producing Safe Eggs: Microbial Ecology ofSalmonella takes the unique approach of interfacing problems ofSalmonellaand microbial contamination with commercial egg production. It presents in-depth information on microbial contamination, safety and control, physiology, immunology, neurophysiology, and animal welfare, which makes this book a complete reference for anyone involved in the safe production of eggs and egg products in the food industry.

This book discusses management and risk factors across the entire egg production process, including practical applications to decrease disease and contaminated food products in poultry houses, processing plants and retail businesses. It is an integral reference for food scientists, food safety and quality professionals, food processors, food production managers, and food business owners, as well as students in food science, safety, microbiology, and animal science.



  • Includes pre- and post-harvest control measures to reduce microbial contamination and salmonella risks
  • Presents hot topics regarding vaccination, egg-in-shell pasteurization, and other new technologies currently under development
  • Provides risk assessment strategies for implementation in business operations
  • Discusses management and risk factors across the entire egg production process, including practical applications to decrease disease and contaminated food products in poultry houses, processing plants, and retail businesses
  • Offers a complete reference for anyone involved in the safe production of eggs and egg products in the food industry
Dr. Ricke received his B.S. degree in Animal Science (1979) an M.S. degree in Ruminant Nutrition (1982) from the Univ. of Illinois and his Ph.D. degree (1989) from the Univ. of Wisconsin with a co-major in Animal Science and Bacteriology. From 1989 to 1992 Dr. Ricke was a USDA-ARS postdoctorate in the Microbiology Department at North C...
