The antibiotic residues were investigated in raw and pasteurized milk produced in Neyshabur region, Iran. To this end, 82 milk samples, including raw and pasteurized milk of different brands and local raw milk samples of collection centers, were collected from Neyshabur region in two seasons during 2016. The antibiotic four-plate test (FPT) was performed to examine the presence of tetracycline,...

A study of pesticide residues was investigated in vegetable samples to highlight the trend of drugs obtained from the Jilin Province, China. Total of 230 samples obtained from four regions over the period 2016–2017 were screened for 18 pesticides that were analyzed using gas chromatography with electron capture (GC-ECD). The results showed that 45 samples (19.6%) were positive including 17...

Foodborne botulism is a potentially fatal illness caused by consuming food with neurotropic exotoxins produced by Clostridium botulinum and other species capable of producing botulinum toxins. Its incidence in Poland has decreased but new cases are still noted. The purpose of this paper is to provide a detailed information on epidemiological data and clinical features of patients with botulism...

Date fruits have ample amount of beneficial minerals but owing to diverse causes may contract with heavy metals and contaminants during field, processing, or transportation posing health challenges to consumers. Hence, current research explored the toxic heavy metals (Al, As, Cr, Pb, Cd, and Sb) levels in seven date varieties (Sakay Mabroum, Sakay Normal, Rashadya Al-qaseem, Barny Al-Madina,...

The binding capacity of Pb on modified rice bran-insoluble fibers RBIF-0.2, RBIF-1.25, and RBIF-2.0 (0.2%, 1.25%, and 2.0% H2SO4 with 1.25% KOH) having the variable specific surface area and cation-exchange capacity was evaluated. The Pb binding in terms of maximum binding capacity (BCmax) with RBIF increased with pH (2–7). However, the presence of sodium and calcium reduced the binding of Pb to...

Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxin is widely contained in seafood and its product. It brings great harm to human health when people eat it. During the past two decades, shellfish toxin quantitative analysis methods develop fast, such as mouse bioassay (MBA), chemical analysis method, immunoassay and cell-based assay (CBA). However, there are some disadvantages in these analytical methods...

The purpose of the study was to determine if pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) peel contains polyphenolic compounds with antibacterial activity against Cronobacter sakazakii. Minimum inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations of a methanolic extract were found to increase significantly (P < .05) with decreasing temperature (37, 21, 10 °C) and pH (6.0, 5.0, 4.0). Chemical analysis by high...

This study was carried out to evaluate the impact of gamma irradiation and turmeric powder (TP) on microbial quality (total aerobic bacteria and coliforms), physicochemical quality (pH, Hunter’s parameter, oxidative and microbial stabilities, haem pigment), stability, and antioxidant status of chicken meat. Accordingly, two doses (1 kGy and 2 kGy) of gamma irradiation alone and in combination...
