  Foodborne bacterial pathogens have been a global health concern due to their geographic and physiological diversity. They can be found in every part of the world regardless of geographical location and climate. Moreover, some of them have ability to tolerate harsh conditions such as high or low temperature and can produce heat stable toxins. Even worse, foods that are contaminated with these bacteria may not look, taste or smell any different from foods that are safe to eat. The diseases associated with foodborne bacterial pathogens affect not only individual health but also nations’ budgets. Both industrialized and developing countries have spent large amount of money to prevent and treat the diseases annually.
