• Abstract

    Food safety concerns have an immediate impact on public health. The food market is an important node for investigating possible risks due to its central role in the delivery of food goods to communities. Health concerns are internationalized as food supply chains span many countries. Therefore, we undertook this literature study to uncover widespread threats to public health from inadequate food safety measures. The online databases were examined for any quantitative, qualitative or mixed-method studies that had been published and they were in the process of publishing. Prisma table analysis was used to determine the level of methodological quality in the included research. Using a qualitative analysis strategy, we classified the ideas in the full-text articles into overarching categories that share commonalities but are not mutually exclusive. After identifying commonalities in the articles' discussions and final thoughts, we synthesized each subject. After a thorough and methodical reading, recurring motifs were uncovered. During analysis, we got better at categorizing and analyzing the data. The examination of 7 full-text papers resulted in common public health issues linked with food safety in the food industry. The expiration dates on these products were demonstrated to pose a serious risk to healthcare in the food sector. The food industry faces several public health issues discovered in this evaluation of the relevant research. As a result, robust national risk-based food surveillance systems are necessary to guarantee the public's safety. Foods entering global trade must be guaranteed to be safe and of high quality as well as imported foods must meet domestic standards. Regulatory bodies, players in the food sector and consumers need to work together to find effective solutions to these problems. By addressing these issues, we can work toward making the food market a place where everyone can feel secure and healthy.
