Globally we face one of the most difficult times regarding foodborne disease outbreaks related to fresh produce, with an increase in the number of reported outbreaks associated with food of non-animal origin (FnAO) (European Food Safety Agency, (EFSA) Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ), 2013). Also the supply of fresh produce on an industrial scale has become a major challenge due to foodborne outbreaks from contaminated fresh produce increasingly reported in many parts of the world.
