Abstract The abattoir sector plays a crucial role in controlling foodborne hazards, so insight in the incentives that motivate abattoirs to implement control measures is of great relevance to food safety risk managers and policy makers. Therefore, a cross‐sectional telephone survey was conducted to assess the attitudes and opinions of abattoirs in Belgium and the Netherlands toward preventive...

Abstract Listeria monocytogenes is a major foodborne pathogen that may contaminate liquid egg yolk (LEY). A background microbiota, purified and identified as Enterococcus faecium with a 99.0% probability, was found in pasteurized unsalted LEY. This study was conducted to investigate the thermal resistance of L. monocytogenes and the background microbiota in unsalted and 10% salted LEY at...

Abstract Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E coli O157:H7) is a highly virulent bacterial strain that is present in food, and as few as 10 cells can cause severe diseases. Rapid and sensitive bacterial detection is urgently required. In this study, we report a flow cytometry (FCM)‐based method for detecting E coli O157:H7 at the single‐cell level. Single E coli O157:H7 cells were obtained by a flow...

Abstract Pesticide residues in produce are not commonly monitored in developing countries. This study aims to determine whether washing and peeling has an effect on removing pesticide residues from guava fruits. Seventy‐five guava samples were purchased from Thai markets, and analyzed for 67 pesticides. Eighteen pesticides were detected in the guava samples. The incidence of pesticide detection...

The goal of this study was to evaluate factors causing low recovery of Campylobacter during regulatory sampling following acidified sodium chlorite (ASC) treatment of broiler carcasses and subsequent carry‐over into neutralizing buffered peptone water (nBPW) rinses. Solution alkalinity was shown to positively correlate with the presence of un‐reduced chlorite anion in the recovery broth,...

Abstract Adulteration of butter can occur when milk fat is replaced with cheaper oils due to the economic advantage of such substitution. With potential health risks on consumers, the issue raises alarming public health concerns. The adulteration of the Egyptian buffalo butter (EBB) with vegetable oils (VOs) was detected by conventional and advanced techniques. EBB was mixed with VOs at different...

Abstract Large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) has rich protein content and high economic value, but has a short shelf life. Lipopeptides extracted from marine Bacillus megaterium were applied to the preservation of large yellow croaker and effectively increased the shelf life of large yellow croaker. The results showed that the total viable count (the total number of colonies), total...

Abstract Cantaloupes contaminated with Listeria and Salmonella have caused large scale of foodborne illness outbreaks in recent years. Prior research has shown that heat treatment can be used to reduce microbial contaminates on fruit surfaces. However, no study has evaluated the use of kitchen steamers for inactivating foodborne pathogens on cantaloupes. The purpose of this study was to test the...

Abstract This study aimed to evaluate the changes in the quality of mortadella sausages with different concentrations of chitosan during the cold storage period. The mortadella was prepared using 0, 1, 2, and 3% chitosan. It was then sliced, vacuum packed and stored at 4°C for a period of 60 days. During the storage period pH, water activity, oxy‐reduction potential, residual nitrite, and degree...

Abstract Aflatoxins (AFs) are naturally occurring contaminants classified as human carcinogens. This article describes presence and concentrations of AFs in both raw and roasted almonds collected from Turkey from September 2017 to February 2018. Long‐term exposure to AFs was then calculated using the per capita consumption of almonds and the concentration of AFs in almonds. AFs were determined...

Abstract Thyme oil nanoemulsions (TONa and TONb), having 219 nm and 163 nm diameters, were successfully prepared by using sonication technique. Zeta potential (ZP) and polydispersity indexes (PDI) of TONa and TONb were defined to be 19.77, 0.24 and −24.80, 0.054, respectively. It was determined that zeta size values of TONs might have played a role on the inhibition of Pseudomonas aeruginosa,...

Abstract Heracleum persicum is a traditional medicinal plant with several pharmaceutical and food applications. There is no well‐documented information regarding the safety profile of this plant. The aim of this study was to evaluate the genotoxic, mutagenic, and cytotoxic potential of ethanolic extract of H. persicum (EEHP). The EEHP induced DNA damage at concentrations higher than 0.25 mg/mL....

Abstract Ice is widely used to preserve fish on markets, playing a major role in the food industry. If manufactured, stored or distributed in inadequate sanitary conditions, it can represent a considerable health risk for both consumers and professionals. The present study characterizes ice used in marketplaces, on microbiological and chemical parameters. The aim was to assess potential risks on...
