Objective
(1) Compare the effect of three different concentrations of HP in aqueous dip solutions for the inactivation of L. monocytogenes on high moisture cheese. (2) Determine effect of different submersion times on the initial inactivation of L. monocytogenes on high moisture cheese. (3) Determine the potential for L. monocytogenes survival and growth during shelf life following neutralization of HP on cheese (4) Determine the depletion of HP in dip solutions using the most efficacious treatment identified.​
