Listeria - Food Safety Training www.foodsafe.net.nz

 

What is Listeria?

Listeria is a foodborne bacteria which can make you sick. Infection with listeria bacteria is called listeriosis. In healthy adults and children listeria usually causes few or no symptoms, but some vulnerable people with a low immunity are more at risk of severe illness.

 

What kinds of food pose the most risk?

Food that poses the most risk are:

Uncooked, smoked or ready-to-eat fish or seafood, including oysters, prawns, smoked ready-to-eat fish, sashimi or sushi paté, hummus-based dips and spreads cold pre-cooked chicken ham and all other chilled pre-cooked meat products including chicken, salami and other fermented or dried sausages* pre-prepared or stored salads (including fruit salads) and coleslaws raw (unpasteurised) milk and any food that contains unpasteurised milk* soft-serve ice creams soft, semi-soft or surface-ripened soft cheese (eg, brie, camembert, feta, ricotta, roquefort)*

*Note that the foods on this list are safe to eat if heated thoroughly to steaming hot (ie, above 72°C) where appropriate

Hepatitis A and managing the risk to Food Safety  

b2ap3_thumbnail_What-is-Hepatitis-A.jpg

 

What causes Hepatitis A?

The Hepatitis A virus (HAV) causes hepatitis A.

Hepatitis A is a severe food and waterborne disease that is primarily transmitted by the faecal-oral route. In simple terms a food handler with bad personal hygiene, cross-contaminates the food.

 

What kinds of food pose the most risk?

Food that poses the most risk are:

Contaminated bivalve shellfish, salads, fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen fruit, water and any manually prepared or ready-to-eat food products where a food handler with bad personal hygiene cross contaminated the food. HAV has been known to survive in crème-filled cookies for >1 day at 21ºC.

Poor hygiene practices and poor sanitation are major risk factors. Presymptomatic foodhandlers excreting HAV pose a risk.

In general, food is rarely available for analysis because of the long incubation period.
