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...
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a bacterial pathogen associated with foodborne diarrheal disease. Infection with STEC presents as a mild, watery diarrhea to hemorrhagic colitis and can progress to the life-threatening complication, hemolytic uremic syndrome. Cattle are recognized...
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a worldwide health concern. To detect STEC, a loop mediated isothermal amplification reaction (LAMP) was optimized to detect shiga toxin genes. LAMP’s performance was compared to conventional and real-time (RT) PCR using two product detection...
Development and validation of a surrogate strain cocktail to evaluate bactericidal effects of pressure on verotoxigenic Escherichia coliDownload
Many strains of verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) are highly resistant to pressure. To facilitate future studies to improve the elimination of VTEC by pressure processing of food, this study developed and validated a cocktail of non-pathogenic strains of E. coli with equal or higher...
The safety of low water activity (aW) foods is a concern due to the survival of low-infectious dose pathogens such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella. Desiccation of non-heat resistant E. coli and Salmonella increases their heat resistance; therefore, a non-thermal alternative is necessary to...
The pressure resistance of Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) depends on food matrix. This study compared the resistance of two five-strain E. coli cocktails, as well as the pressure resistant strain E. coli AW1.7, to hydrostatic pressure application in bruschetta, tzatziki, yoghurt...
Environmental Risk Factors Associated with Contamination of Private Drinking Water Wells with Escherichia coliDownload
The focus of this research was to identify environmental risk factors that play a critical role in the contamination of drinking water wells with Escherichia coli. This study used data from a case control-study carried out between April 2005 and September 2006 in Ontario and Alberta, using...
During food processing, Escherichia coli are exposed to stress from oxidation, osmolarity and temperature, and have developed mechanisms to survive. A highly heat resistant strain of E. coli AW1.7 was isolated from a beef carcass after thermal processing and it has a genomic island called the...
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...
