Interesting article in food safety magazine last week The article discussed the findings from a workshop on foodborne illness, held earlier this year, the summary report of which has just been published by CEFAS.  The workshop assembled experts from various sectors; academia, food, human health and government regulation, with a view to “clarify what is already known about foodborne viruses, given the increasing number of outbreaks that have taken place recently. The workshop focused narrowly on hepatitis A, norovirus, and hepatitis E–all of which are of great concern in the European Union. The experts were able to pinpoint knowledge gaps, identifying where additional research is needed to improve rates of foodborne illness.”
