Mechanical abrasion with subsequent spray applications of sanitizer as a method to remove biofilms and non-biofilms from food processing surfaces
The attachment and potential growth of bacteria remaining on food processing equipment after sanitation can cause cross-contamination, which can lead to food spoilage and possible food safety concerns. The purpose of this ...
Control of foodborne pathogens and their biofilms by levulinic acid and sodium dodecyl sulfate
The efficacy of commonly used sanitizers in food processing facilities is reduced when organic matter is present. If the sanitizing procedures are inadequate, surviving microorganisms could attach and form biofilms given ...
Surface material, temperature, and soil effects on the survival of selected foodborne pathogens in condensate
We evaluated four surfaces [stainless steel, Delrin® (DuPont) acetal resin, fiberglass reinforced plastic wall paneling (FRP), and mortar] to determine the effects that surface-type, soil (porcine serum), and temperature ...
Antibiotic resistance and cell surface components of Salmonella
Certain Salmonella isolates from poultry meat and our laboratory collection were resistant to multiple antibiotics. Some antibiotic resistance genes in the Salmonella were transferable to Escherichia coli during conjugation. ...
