The global food safety strategy of WHO includes as a main goal reducing of health and social burden of foodborne diseases also by surveillance systems.
In this regard the Ministry of Public Health in Romania initiated national programs aiming to protect the population and prevent outbreaks of diseases related to environmental risk factors by developing surveillance methodologies.

Institute of Public Health Timisoara (IPHT) developed a monitoring system for meat products regarding their
microbiological contaminates and
in order to establish a local regional and national
to be used in
food risk assessment for an evidence-based national control strategy
as well as to perform capacity building for the Public Health Authorities (PHAs) in all the 42 counties in Romania involved in the study.
IPHT designed a web-based methodology that was applied by all 42 PHAs (trained) consisting in
data collection - questionnaires collecting information about the hygienic conditions on the entire food chain
meat products samples analysis to establish nutritional quality and microbiological contamination
report - using an informational system (for each county) and
communication of harmonized data.
Data from the questionnaire revealed the unacceptable figures
15-18 of the sanitation testes most of them (59-67) at the equipments and working surfaces and
only 42-63 of the meat plants had a functional HACCP system (not mandatory for Romania at that time).
39-48 of the 23385 collected samples had unacceptable nutritional values for at least one parameter
protein content bellow or above the standard limits
fat content above the limits and
moister above the limits.
protein content with low nutritional value animal protein substituted by vegetal protein (soy and peas extracts) or animal protein with low EAA content (collagen tissues).
Data from questionnaires revealed the use of ingredients which decreased the nutritional value of the meat products
starch increases perishability respectively increases the microbiological risk
collagen tissues - tendon cartilage aponeuroses
MDM mechanical deboned meat (poultry or pork not allowed any more).
11 Average protein content in sausages (min 10) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 12 Average fat content in sausages (max 28) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 13 Average moisture content in sausages (max 68) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 14 RESULTS
Microbiological contamination has been identified in 12-18 of the samples
most frequent types of pathogenetic bacteria were coliforms (up to 88) and E. Coli (up to 85)
other identified microbiological contaminants were Bacillus Cereus (up to 56) coagulase-positive Staphilococcus (up to 28) sulfite reducing Clostridia (up to 18) and Salmonella (up to 10).
Most frequently contaminated assortments were
forcemeat gt meat balls gt sausages prepared from swine entrails.
Responsible for foodborne diseases outbreaks due to contaminated meat products consumption were
Salmonella followed by
E. Coli followed by
16 Number of E. Coli in sausages (max 1/g) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 17 Number of coliforms in sausages (max 10/g) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 18 Number of Salmonella in sausages (0/g) during 2001-2004 in the 42 counties 19 CONCLUSIONS
We consider that the development of such a network could be sustainable and useful for a gradual introduction of a unitary harmonized surveillance system of the manufacturing conditions nutritional value and microbiological contamination (integrated food safety network) through local regional and national evaluations of health risks related to meat products consumption.
It can detect faults and needs and provide with a database to support MPH in taking health-related decisions in these matters ensuring adequate resources to establish and strengthen the food safety programs and national food safety plan.
