Many manufactured baked goods are produced ‘sterile’ but can subsequently be blighted by post process contamination. Bakery products, like many processed foods, are subject to microbiological and chemical spoilage. A number of food safety and spoilage issues over recent years have been associated with baked goods including acrylamide, allergens, bacteria, mycotoxins and viruses.
