Application of antimicrobials for the elimination of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes in brine injected beefDownload
The application of antimicrobials to a brine-injected raw beef roast for the elimination/inhibition of heat resistant Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes was investigated. The choice of antimicrobials for use in brine injected beef was based on minimum bactericidal concentration in brine...
Escherichia coli and Salmonella are contaminants in meat products and pose a risk for foodborne illness. Thermal lethality is the traditional method for controlling pathogens in meat products. It is recommended that ground beef and poultry products be cooked to internal temperatures of 71Â°C and...
The mechanism of heat resistance in an exceptionally resistant strain of E. coli was investigated. E. coli AW1.7 was compared to a heat sensitive strain, E. coli GGG10. The heat resistance of both strains was increased by inclusion of NaCl, but only E. coli AW1.7 exhibited a consistent heat...
Strains of Escherichia coli may survive heat or pressure stress, acquire specific virulence genes and cause severe human diseases. The locus of heat resistance (LHR) has been identified as an important heat resistant element in E. coli. The objective of this thesis was to explore the role of the...
