Abstract

Abstract The laws, regulations, and policies around issues of food microbiology in the United States stem from a patchwork of rules and directives from a number of different government agencies issued over a lengthy period of time. In many instances, the laws and resulting regulations or policies are reactive – meaning that they result from a particular issue (e.g., outbreaks associated with Salmonella Enteritidis resulted in regulations around control of the pathogen in eggs). This chapter reviews the key laws, major agencies, and major regulations that affect the microbiological quality of food in the United States.
