Resumen

GONZALEZ, Lucia J et al. Risk analysis of foodborne diseases: Microbial risk assessment. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2010, vol.27, n.6, pp. 513-524. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182010000700004.

The basic goals of risk assessment include the following: to identify potentially hazardous situations and apply appropriate methods to estimate the likelihood that a hazard occurs. In The uncertainty in that estimate, to provide alternative solutions to reduce the risk, estimate the effectiveness of those solutions, provide information to base a risk management decision, and estimate the uncertainty associated with the analysis. Risk analysis provides the rational framework for assembling and then analysing the evidence relating to risk and presenting the results in a form that is easy to understand and then act upon fairly and effectively. Progress made is no excuse for arrogance. The present review is definitely not designed as the last word on risk analysis for foodborne diseases. Rather, this review has been designed to continue an evolving and necessary process and to provide a reference point that indicates the state of development in 2010.

Palabras clave : Quantitative risk assessment; growth models; microbial risk.
