Biofilms with Listeria pose persistent threat in food production

from Food Safety News

It doesn't matter how big or influential a company is, bacteria and biofilms don't discriminate between multinationals like Dole with its tens of thousands of employees and operations like Hudson Valley Farms, where 10 or fewer people work. Both of those companies have had close encounters with Listeria, which ongoing research is showing can be even tougher to kill than previously thought. When the microorganism has time to set up housekeeping in a biofilm in crevices on equipment or around drains and cracks in floors, it is even more difficult to evict.

Editor's note: Advancing food safety is the number one goal of the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI). This goal includes doubling down on Listeria monocytogenes prevention and control by assisting AFFI members in enhancing their best food safety practices, advocating for reasonable government policies and educating consumers on the importance of following cooking instructions. more
