Food Contamination and Food Poisoning

Food contamination: According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) research, Food contamination is generally defined as foods that are spoiled or tainted because they either contain microorganisms, such as bacteria or parasites, or toxic substances that make them unfit for consumption.

These contaminants have several routes throughout the supply chain (farm to fork) to enter and make a food product unfit for consumption.
