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.

PAW was produced by treating distilled water with two atmospheric dielectric-barrier discharges (51.7 W, 14.4 kHz, air discharge) for 20 min. The inactivation effect of PAW on indigenous microorganism and inoculated Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonel...

In the United States, the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables has increased during recent years as consumers seek to make healthier lifestyle choices. However, the number of outbreaks associated with fresh produce that involve cases in more than one state (multistate) has increased concomitantly. As the distance along the farm-to-fork continuum has lengthened over time, there are also more opportunities for fresh produce contamination with bacterial pathogens before it reaches the consumer. This review provides an overview of the three bacterial pathogens (i.e., pathogenic Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, a...

In this study, CAP treatment was combined with a mild hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) treatment for disinfection of 1 and 7 day(s) old Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Typhimurium biofilms. Three different treatment sequences were investigated in order to determine the most effective treatment sequence, i.e., (i) first CAP, then H2O2, (ii) first H2O2, then CAP, and (iii) a simultaneous treatment of CAP and H2O2. Removal of the biofilm, induction of sub-lethal injury, and H2O2 breakdown due to the presence of catalase within the biofilms were investigated in order to comment on their possible contribution to the combined inac...

koh Disease outbreaks caused by the ingestion of contaminated vegetables and fruits pose a significant problem to human health. The sources of contamination of these food products at the preharvest level of agricultural production, most importantly, agricultural soil and irrigation water, serve as potential reservoirs of some clinically significant foodborne pathogenic bacteria. These clinically important bacteria include: Klebsiella spp., Salmonella spp., Citrobacter spp., Shigella spp., Enterobacter spp., Listeria monocytogenes and pathogenic E. coli (and E. coli O157:H7) all of which have the potential to cause dise...

Abstract The present study focused on production, optimization and characterization of exopolysaccharide (EPS) from Weissella confusa MD1. The purified EPS MD1 was also evaluated for in vitro biological activities. The maximum yield of EPS (10.07 ± 0.32 g/L) was obtained with optimized culture conditions of 35 ˚C at pH 6.5 for 36 h with 4% (w/v) galactose and 1% (w/v) ammonium nitrate supplemented in MRS broth. The crude EPS was purified with diethylamino ethanol-Sepharose Fast Flow column and Sephadex-G 75 column. The physicochemical and functional characterization of the EPS was done by high-performance ...

Most environmental biofilms contain a variety of species. These species can establish cooperative and competitive interactions, possibly resulting in an increase or a decrease in antimicrobial resistance. Therefore, results obtained following inactivation of single-species biofilms by means of different technologies (e.g., Cold Atmospheric Plasma, CAP) should be validated for multi-species biofilms. First, a strongly adherent and mature Listeria monocytogenes and S. Typhimurium dual-species biofilm was developed by altering different incubation conditions, i.e., growth medium, incubation temperature, inoculum ratio of L. m...
