Risk ranking of chemical and microbiological hazards in food

Risk ranking of chemical and microbiological hazards in food

Published on: Mon, 27 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Risk ranking is a versatile tool used to prioritise activities performed by public health regulatory bodies. It also allows efficient communication between all stakeholders in the process of risk analysis. However, risk ranking methods are still not optimal. Because of the different approaches employed in the risk assessment of microbiological agents and chemicals, it is difficult to rank them together using the same metrics. In our work, we first discuss di...
