H&C Food Inc. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling 7.05OZ (200G) Enoki mushrooms imported from Green Co. located in Korea, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly peopl
In conclusion, these NLuc-based reporter phages enable rapid, ultrasensitive detection and differentiation of viable Listeria cells using a simple protocol that is 72 hours faster than culture-dependent approaches.Importance Culture-dependent methods are the gold standard for sensitive and specific detection of pathogenic bacteria within the food production chain. In contrast to molecular approaches, these methods detect viable cells, which is a key advantage for foods generated from heat-inactivated source material. However, culture-based diagnostics are typically much slower than molecular or proteomic strategies. Report...
CONCLUSION: bLf can affect the biofilm production in Listeria isolates from slaughterhouses surfaces and shown synergic effect with ampicillin. Also has a synergic effect with oxytetracycline and streptomycin against E. coli isolates from bovine carcasses. PMID: 32242775 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThus, hMCs exhibit a highly individualized pattern of immune response possibly to meet tissue requirements and regulate bacteria coexistence vs defense.
Abstract Microbial biomass, as an environmentally friendly resource, has drawn a lot of attention as green biomaterials for production of unique and functionalized carbon dots (CDs). However, the hydrophilicity and high porosity drive bacterial nanocellulose as a suitable matrix for CDs with antimicrobial, photoluminescent and ultraviolet blocking features. For the first time, antimicrobial CDs were synthesized by hydrothermal method from cell-free supernatant of Lactobacillus acidophilus and characterized. Antimicrobial performance of CDs was examined on Escherichia coli (Gram-negative) and Listeria monocytogenes...
