In this chapter, we revisited the different system approaches to predicting the growth, survival and enumeration of microorganisms that have food safety implications. Different established mathematical and statistical approaches, including kinetic modeling, response surface methodology as well as emerging predictive approaches such as artificial neural networks and Bayesian network are being used to understand the effect of pathogenic microorganisms on foods and predict their effects in foods. Since these applications are mathematical in nature, it is important to maintain constant environmental conditions and also validate the models to confirm their applicability.
