Human enteric viruses have properties that are unique from those of bacterial foodborne pathogens. Viruses are usually species-specific and tissue-tropic, meaning that the human enteric viruses are believed to infect only humans. From an epidemiologic perspective, human norovirus (NoV) and hepatitis A virus (HAV) are the two most important. From a foodborne disease standpoint, three types of commodities are commonly associated with viral disease outbreaks, namely, (i) molluscan shellfish contaminated by feces-impacted growing waters; (ii) fresh produce items contaminated by human feces during production or packing, usually through workers’ hands or contact with contaminated water; and (iii) ready-to-eat (RTE) and prepared foods contaminated by infected food handlers as a result of poor personal hygiene. The major steps for the detection of viruses in foods can be designated as follows: (i) virus concentration and purification, (ii) nucleic acid extraction, (iii) detection of amplicons, and (iv) confirmation of amplicon identity. Epidemiologic evidence reveals that foods play an important role in the transmission of human enteric viruses. Improved and more widespread reporting and investigation of foodborne viral disease outbreaks, as well as targeted epidemiologic studies to identify the risk factors for acquiring viral gastroenteritis, would improve our understanding of source attribution.

Norwalk virus genome organization (adapted from Kapikian et al. [ ]). VPg, genome-linked virion protein. ORF1 encodes polyprotein posttranslationally cleaved into nonstructural proteins helicase (with a predicted nucleotide triphosphate-binding domain [NTPase]), proteinase (Pro), and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (Pol). ORF2 encodes capsid protein, which is translated into major and minor structural proteins which consist of shell and protruding domains. N, NH2-terminal arm. ORF3 encodes a basic protein of unknown function. doi:10.1128/9781555818463.ch24f1
