All about me :)

My name is Keith Watkins and I have been working in the food industry for over 30 years mostly in Laboratory or QA roles with special interest in food microbiology. I have worked in manufacturing sites and contract laboratories. I decided to start this blog to help disseminate information about issues and updates in food microbiology and related topics that those of you in the industry may find interesting. The idea is not to have long-winded articles but just word bites that pass on information with links to the original articles. That way you can quickly scan what may be of interest to you and discard what is not.

The other very useful tool is the search box which can be used to find information about research, outbreaks, incidents and individual microoganisms. I use it as my own library of food microbiology information and you can as well

Please feel free to leave comments on issues that you may like included or issues about content.

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this during
    my search for something regarding this.

  3. Dear Keith,

    I have been receiving emails from KSW with all the outbreaks worldwide and other useful information every day for about a year.

    Useful as it is to read individual incidents of food poisoning is there any chance of getting summary information i.e how many outbreaks were there associated with melons worldwide in 2017 and which pathogens caused these outbreaks?
