According to Shuval et al., (1997) 10.8 mL of irrigation water will be left on a 100 g lettuce after harvest. There are two days between lettuce harvest and consumption (WHO, 2006a). The amount of lettuce consumed per person per day was taken as 100 g at a rate of one lettuce per week per consumerin developing country (Shuval et al., 1997);(Nana O.B. Ackerson and Esi Awuah, 2012)such as Burkina Faso. Thus, a consumer can be exposed 52 times per year.The exposure scenarios of different matrix for farmers and consumers are summarized in table 3 below.

For dose-response relationships, the beta-Poisson dose-response model described by Haas et al., (1999)was used for Salmonella, Ascaris. However, single-hit exponential dose-response can be applied for Salmonella and Ascaris. Dose-response parameters for exponential and beta-Poisson models from various enteric pathogen ingestion studied by different authors were summarized in table 4 below. To calculate microbial risk, uncertain values (minimum and maximum values) of pathogen amounts will use to evaluate risk for each treatment.
Single-hit exponential model:
Where the probability of infection which is a function of r and d
= empirical parameter assumed to be constant for any given host and given pathogen picked to fit the data
Mean ingested dose, N50= the median dose, á andâ= slope parameters, which hold when â=1 and á=â.
The annual probability of infection is given by:
Where = acceptable annual risk of infection caused by a pathogenic organism
n = number of exposure events per year (events/yr).
A QMRA model for broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, and three cultivars of cabbage constructed by Hamilton et al. (2006) was used to calculate the daily dose of pathogenic organism on the lettuce. The beta -Poisson and exponential dose -response models were subsequently used to calculate the probability of infection (Nana O.B. Ackerson and Esi Awuah, 2012).
The daily dose of pathogens, ë=d, taken as a result of consuming the lettuce was calculated as:
Mbody = human body mass (kg)
Mi = daily consumption per capita per kg of body mass [g (kg.ca.day)-1]
ciw= concentration of pathogens in irrigation water
Vprod= volume of irrigation water caught by product (mL.g-1)
k = pathogen kinetic decay constant (day-1)
t = time between last reclaimed - water irrigation event and harvest/consumption/storage (day).
Mbody = 71.8 kg
From survey, Mi = 1.6713 g. (kg.ca.day)-1
Vprod = 0.125 mL g-1 ; t = 2 d.
