Author affiliations

Abstract

Foodborne pathogens are the main factors behind foodborne diseases and food poisoning and thus pose a great threat to food safety. Many outbreaks have been found to be associated with biofilms. It is well documented that biofilms have become an urgent problem in the current food industry as biofilms can renders inhabitants on such films resistant to antimicrobial agents and cleaning. In this paper, recent literature related to the biofilm formation and on the factors that influence foodborne pathogens are reviewed. In addition, the control and removal strategies of foodborne pathogens used to efficiently maintain food safety in the food industry are also discussed.
