Emerging Food Safety Issues in 2010

Note: Tomorrow we turn the page to 2010 and we cannot think of a better time to look ahead at the things we know for certain will be in the news of the New Year.

In discussing some of the major emerging trends, we are not making predictions but rather just using some common sense to talk about what the future holds. Emerging issues give us a clue about what we will be writing about in 2010.

For certain, much of what the New Year is a secret and will remain so until it plays out. We've come to expect the unexpected when it comes to food safety. The big E. coli outbreaks always feel like earthquakes or explosions. Foods we least expect keep getting contaminated with one bacteria or another.

Rather, reading about the emerging issues is a nice, calm way to start the New Year.
