In this study, a sseK1 deletion mutant of S. enteritidis was constructed and its biological characteristics were examined. It was found that the sseK1 deletion mutant did not affect the growth, adherence and invasion of Salmonella enteritidis when compared to the wild-type S. enteritidis. However, the mutant showed decreased formation of biofilm and significantly reduced intracellular survival of bacteria in activated mouse peritoneal macrophages, as well as showed reduced pathogenicity to a murine model by increasing the lethal dose 50% (LD50) value and decreasing the proliferation ratio of bacteria in vivo. Taken togethe...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of the natural safety high antimicrobial compounds on egg yolk protein structure and function. Three different concentrations have been evaluated from: trans-cinnamaldehyde, thymol, menthol or vanillin on egg yolk by measuring the antimicrobial activity, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), secondary protein structure, surface hydrophobicity, zeta-potential, foaming and color properties. Results showed that by mixing yolk with 0.1% of thymol and trans-cinnamaldehyde, the antimicrobial activity increased significantly (P < 0.05) to 92.18 ± 3.26; 98.95 &p...

Publication date: July 2018 Source:Food Control, Volume 89 Author(s): Siyuan Zhou, Changying Hu, Guohua Zhao, LinShu Liu, Shiowshuh Sheen, Kit L. Yam Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is an antimicrobial compound used in fresh produce sanitation. Compared to its aqueous form, gaseous ClO2 has an enhanced antimicrobial effect. This research proposed a novel generating method of ClO2(g) that utilized carbon dioxide and moisture naturally released from tomato during respiration to react with sodium chlorite for ClO2(g) generation. The results showed that the generated ClO2(g) not only effectively reduced the surface-inoculated Salmone...

In this study, we tested farm vegetables and agricultural water for the presence of foodborne pathogens, and evaluated farming practices of vegetable farms in Rwanda. Farm vegetable samples were found to be contaminated with foodborne pathogens at considerably high rate (overall 15/99 = 15%). Specifically, the prevalence of pathogens in farm vegetables varied from 1.0% (1/99) for Listeria monocytogenes, 3.0% (3/99) for thermo-tolerant Campylobacter spp., 5.1% (5/99) for Salmonella spp. to 6.1% (6/99) pathogenic Escherichia coli. In agricultural water from rivers, lakes, lagoons, ground and marshlands, prevalence of DNA...

Nevertheless, the available methods to fabricate carbon nanowires in a controlled manner remain limited to expensive techniques. This paper presents a simple fabrication technique for sub-100 nm suspended carbon nanowire sensors by in...

In this study, two Salmonella enterica serovars (Hartford and Cubana) applied, at multiple inoculation levels, were evaluated for survival and growth on alfalfa sprouts and Swiss chard microgreens using the most probable number (MPN) method. Various abiotic factors were also examined for their effects on Salmonella survival and growth on sprouts and microgreens. Community level physiological profiles (CLPP) of sprout/microgreen rhizospheres with different levels of S. enterica inoculation at different growth stage were characterized with Biolog EcoPlates. In the seed contamination group, the ability of S. enterica to grow ...

Smokehouse Pet Products, Inc. of Sun Valley, CA is recalling all sizes and package types of dog treats labeled as “ Beefy Munchies, ” because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
