Microbial risk assessment (MRA) in the food industry is used to support HACCP – which largely focuses on bacterial pathogen control in processing foodstuffs Potential role of microbially-contaminated water used in food production is not as well understood Emergence of Quantitative MRA as a tool for assessing & informing waterborne pathogen risks internationally WHO: water safety plans (2004), wastewater reuse (2006) Primary point of this paper is to highlight potential risks from water in food production 1
