Foods to be sampled are regularly reviewed at WFMF meetings and are usually selected as being those of particular interest to local authorities, FSA Wales, and PHLS in Wales.
Tests for aerobic colony count, Escherichia coli, Bacillus, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, and Listeria have been maintained as the standard range of tests over the years of the program, while tests for other organisms have been introduced or removed at WFMF's request.
The local authorities currently have responsibility for inputting the microbiological results and associated sample information into the WFMF database and electronically transmitting the data to CDSC Wales, where it is collated for storage and analysis.
The WFMF database is periodically audited for accuracy, a process that involves comparing the results in the forum database to the laboratory results held by PHLS in Wales.
Another area in which the WFMF data could be used is in the evolution of existing guidelines for ready-to-eat foods.
