Abstract Street food is a prevalent part of the food service industry. It is convenient in terms of accessibility and cost, but perceived as potential risk of foodborne illness. Accordingly, the safety of street foods in Beirut, Lebanon was assessed using an observational checklist and microbiological analyses. A total of 30 vendors were observed for their food safety parameters and 60 samples...

Abstract Shiga-toxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC), also known as enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) pose a significant threat to public health worldwide. Livestock animals are well known reservoirs of STEC. In this study, cattle were investigated in situ on the tropical island of Mauritius. This island is of economic importance as it has a consolidated tourism industry and possesses several...

Abstract Presented here is an optimized and validated high-throughput method for the simultaneous determination of 11 different classes of mycotoxins from the popular traditional Chinese medicine Panax ginseng. The selected mycotoxins included the aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, and G2 and the fumonisins B1 and B2, as well as CIT, HT-2, T-2, zearalenone, and ochratoxin A. This high-throughput analysis was...

Abstract This study evaluates anti-biofilm activity of four extracts from marine fungi; Penicillium citrinum PR1T4, Sarocladium strictum PP2L4, Aspergillus sydowii PR3T13, and Aspergillus spp. PR5T4 against Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes (ATCC 19115), Escherichia coli, and Salmonella typhi (ATCC 14028). The ability of bacterial cells to adhere, detach, and form biofilm on stainless...

Abstract Clostridium perfringens spores are able to persist under harsh conditions, and thus, are predestined as high risk hazards in the food category dried spices and herbs. In the present study, C. perfringens spores were produced, and then, screened toward their susceptibility to the antimicrobial activity of nine condiments. While heat activation for induction of spore germination led to a...

Abstract The present study was conducted to extend the shelf life of Lyoner-type sausages during 40 days of storage at 4 °C with individual and combinational use of natural preservatives including cinnamon essential oil (CEO) and grape seed extract (GSE). The samples were analyzed for physicochemical properties (pH, aw, and color changes), lipid oxidation (thiobarbituric acid reactive substances...

Abstract The objective of this study was to investigate the survival of coliphage MS2 as a surrogate for enteric viruses under different process conditions in the production of traditional ice cream. The results showed that heat treatment (73 °C, 10 min) decreased the recovery of coliphage MS2 to 1.33, 1.11, and 0.97 log10 (pfu/ml) in nonfrozen ice cream samples with 15%, 10%, and 5% fat,...

Abstract The occurrence of aflatoxin M1 (AFM1), ochratoxin A (OTA), and deoxynivalenol (DON) in human milk and their correlation to the lactating donors dietary habits from Southern Brazil were investigated. Milk samples were collected from 86 nursing mothers who were also interviewed through a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ). The occurrence of AFM1, OTA, and DON in the human milk samples was...

Abstract Contamination sources, biofilm-forming ability and biocide resistance of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 and non-O157 from two tilapia-processing plants were assessed. The application of unsuitable handling and sanitizing procedures caused a wide contamination by thermotolerant coliforms in Factories A (51.2% of points) and B (66.7%), exceeding the legal limits for frozen...

Abstract The aim of this study was to implement Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA cycle) as a method for the continuous quality improvement in the dairy laboratories. This method was used to identify and analyze the critical problems that occur in the preanalytical stage of ultra-high-temperature (UHT) milk samples, to find the root causes of their occurrence and proffer solutions. Results showed a...
