Pathogenic germs are microorganisms that can lead to food infections or food poisoning in humans due to their pathogenic properties or toxins. According to Regulation (EC) 2073/2005, they must not be present in food or may not exceed maximum levels.
To avoid food contamination with pathogenic germs it is not enough to merely examine the end products. The task must also include the regular sampling of the production environment (monitoring).
The detection of pathogenic germs is one of the most important tasks of consumer health protection.
A good monitoring system can identify, for example, unwanted changes in the manufacturing process, allowing suitable corrective measures to be implemented in a timely fashion!
