Contaminated Fresh Produce and Product Liability: A Law-in-Action Perspective

Denis Stearns wrote “Contaminated Fresh Produce and Product Liability: A Law-in-Action Perspective,” in Microbial Safety of Fresh Produce: Challenges, Perspectives, and Strategies, an IFT Press publication to be released in 2009. According to the publisher, “[the book] covers all aspects of produce safety including pathogen ecology, agro-management, pre-harvest and post-harvest interventions, and adverse economic impacts of outbreaks. The book examines the current state of the problems associated with fresh produce by reviewing the recent, high-profile outbreak sassociated with fresh-produce, including the possible internalization of pathogens by plant tissues, and understanding how human pathogens survive and multiply in water, soils, and fresh fruits and vegetables.”
