With summer arrival and high temperatures, the risk of food poisoning increases
La World Health Organization (WHO) It estimates that every year around 600 million people, almost 1 in 10 inhabitants, are ill in the world for eating contaminated food, and that 420,000 people die for this same cause.
With summer arrival and high temperatures, the risk of food poisoning increases. This is what the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States, which points out that one of the root causes of this increase is that bacteria present throughout the environment, in the soil, air, water and in the bodies of animals and people, grow faster during the hot summer months. The experts point out that another of the circumstances leading to increased food-borne diseases during the season are outdoor activities, where it is more common to cook and eat outside the house, taking food to the beach or the mountain, without having a proper temperature and cooling of food.
Infectious organisms or their toxins can contaminate food at any stage of processing or production. Also, if food is manipulated or cooked in a wrong way, pollution can occur at home. In fact, according to data from the Consumer and User Organization (OCU), more than 50% of food poisonings originate in food prepared at home.
Food security in the industry
“Food security is one of the main challenges and objectives of any industry related to food processing and packaging. In order to ensure the safety of consumers, it is essential that companies adopt the HACCP guidelines (Analysis of Risks and Critical Points of Control),’ says Juan Ramon Ortiz, director of the company MicroPlanet, specializing in the supply of products and services for the laboratory and industry, which adds that ‘contact with tools that ensure it quickly and reliably, facilitates and optimizes performance in your work’.

MicroPlanet distributes in Spain the best tools in the market for microbiological control in the food industry. One of them is HACC System, manufactured by Liofilchem, a panel for the determination of the total microbial load and identification of pathogenic bacteria isolated from work surfaces simultaneously. The company also distributes Food System Liofilchem©, a fast panel of detection and presumptive identification of microrganisms in meat, milk and cheese, fish and other food products such as Salmonella, Listeria, yeasts or molds.
In turn, MicroPlanet has prepared means of cultivation for the use of Liofilchem, with ISO requirements, on the preparation, production, storage and performance tests of the culture media used in food microbiology.
On the other hand, the firm has the distribution of the miniaturized plates for microbiological cultivation Compact DryTMmanufactured by the Japanese company Nissui Pharmaceutical, “which provide a simple and safe procedure to determine and quantify microorganisms in food products. These plates incorporate a dehydrated and prepared chromogenic culture medium for immediate use, and have an expiration of 18 to 24 months”, Ortiz concludes.
