Dried apples, strawberries and raisins were mixed with a five-strain cocktail of Salmonella at 4% volume per weight of dried fruit at 109 CFU/g. The inoculated dried fruit were then dried in desiccators at 25°C until the water activity (aw) approximated that of the uninoculated dried fruit. However, Salmonella co...
