Abstract

Recently reviews of interventions studies in pre-harvest food safety have identified issues with lack of reporting of key methodological quality features and items necessary for interpretation and replication of trial findings. In human medicine, similar issues with the reporting of clinical trials were identified 10-15 years ago. This led to the publication of the CONsolidated Standards Of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement, which consists of a 22-item checklist of items that should be reported when publishing a clinical trial, a flow diagram to describe participant movement at all stages of a trial, and an explanation and elaboration document.
