Correction

In the APHA's disease surveillance report for April 2015 (VR, July 25, 2015, vol 177, pp 91–95, doi:10.1136/vr.h3860), in the small ruminants section, it should have read ‘Salmonella Diarizonae and Listeria monocytogenes’ not ‘Salmonella Pullorum and Listeria monocytogenes’. Further, in this section, the text should have read ‘Salmonella Diarizonae’ and not ‘Salmonella Pullorum’. The error is regretted.

In this study, our aim was to evaluate ClO2 precursors, sodium chlorite and citric acid, under disparate but applicable conditions. First, we modeled production of ClO2 from the powdered precursors with three different masses, sample ID 1, 2, and 3, at room (18 °C) and refrigeration (4 °C) temperatures. Second, we investigated the effects of a water reservoir on ClO2 production. Third, we assessed collection method issues that may impact reported ClO2 values. Finally, we evaluated the precursor's efficacy against three common foodborne pathogens: Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella ...

The aim of this study was the assessment of the effect of time exposure, temperature, distance, and organic contaminants on radiant catalytic ionization (RCI) microbicidal effectiveness. The number of all examined bacteria decreased together with time exposure of RCI. The lowest recovery was obtained, both from the rubber surface (6.36 log CFU × cm–2) and steel (6.04 log CFU × cm–2) in the case of Escherichia coli O157:H7. On the other hand, Staphylococcus aureus was isolated in the largest number (rubber: 7.88 log CFU × cm–2, steel: 7.79 log CFU × cm–2). Among the tested env...

Abstract In the present study, we investigated whether cold plasma activation affected the efficacy of aerosolized hydrogen peroxide against S. Typhimurium and L. innocua. Stem scars and smooth surfaces of grape tomatoes, surfaces of Granny Smith apples and Romaine lettuce (both midrib and upper leaves) and cantaloupe rinds were inoculated with two-strain cocktails of S. Typhimurium and 3-strain cocktails of L. innocua. The inoculated samples were treated with 7.8% aerosolized H2O2 with and without cold plasma for various times. For all fresh produce items and surfaces, cold plasma significantly (P

Abstract We evaluated the bactericidal efficacy of the simultaneous application of ultraviolet-A (UV-A) irradiation and fumaric acid (FA) against Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, and Listeria monocytogenes in apple juice and as well as investigated the effects of this treatment on product quality. Further, we elucidated the mechanisms underlying their synergistic bactericidal action. Simultaneous UV-A light irradiation and 0.1% FA treatment for 30 min resulted in 6.65-, 6.27-, and 6.49-log CFU/ml reductions in E. coli O157:H7, S. Typhimurium, and L. monocytogenes, respectivel...

Test sheets containing copper and humate show antibacterial and antifungal activity. A new, modified disk diffusion test can detect the antimicrobial activity of slow diffusion packaging materials. Humate help to increase copper content of test sheets. During our research, cellulose ‐based test sheets containing copper and potassium humate were prepared and tested against several bacterial and fungal strains. The energy dispersive X‐ray spectrometry and attenuated total reflectance (ATR) Fourier‐transform infrared spectroscopy revealed that humate contributed to increase the copper content of the test sheets. The ant...

Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: Sensors and Actuators B: ChemicalAuthor(s): Sirirat Wachiralurpan, Kosum Chansiri, Peter A. LieberzeitAbstractCurrent methods for identifying Listeria monocytogenes are both time and labor intensive. However, it is highly desirable to detect it rapidly and reliably to prevent and/or identify contamination of foodstuff. Herein we propose a mass-sensitive sensor operating at elevated temperatures, 50-55 °C, for that purpose. Sensitive and selective detection relies on distinguishing genes of genomic extract of L. monocytogenes. A thiol-modified ssDNA probe d...

In this study, we established a whole-cell method for the identification of foodborne pathogenic bacteria, using MALDI-TOF MS and principal component analysis (PCA), which did not use protein extractions or expensive protein databases. Thirty strains comprising six common foodborne pathogenic bacteria, namely, Shigella flexneri, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enteritidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Listeria monocytogenes were analyzed using MALDI-TOF MS. The culture time, matrix, and spotting method were optimized based on peak intensity and deviation. A PCA was performed to analyze the mass spectrome...

This study investigated the antimicrobial activity of pecan shell extracts as effected by the type of cultivar and the method of extraction against various foodborne bacterial pathogens. Defatted shell powders of 19 different pecan cultivars were subjected to aqueous and ethanolic extraction (1:20 w/v) procedures, respectively. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) of lyophilized pecan shell extracts dissolved in deionized water containing 5% DMSO (v/v) were determined against multiple strains of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella enterica, and Escherichia coli O157:H7. The...

This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a water spray system in cleaning conveyor belts contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. Samples were obtained from modular and smooth conveyor belts from four slaughterhouses in Brazil, and bacterial presence was assessed in sprayed and unsprayed belts. From each conveyor belt, 400 cm2 were sampled using sponges at various time periods (T0: 5:00 h; T1: 9:00 h; T2: 17:00 h, and T3: 22:00 h), and these samples were submitted for Salmonella and L. monocytogenes detection. The results were expressed as frequencies and analyzed by Chi-square test. A lo...
