We investigated antibiotic resistance of staphylococci isolated from 1128 samples of high-circulating RTE foods in Taiwan. A total of 111 Staphylococcus aureus and 709 coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) comprising 23 species were isolated. The prevalence of S. aureus differed in various category of RTE foods, highest in fresh-cut fruits/vegetables (20.5%) and lowest in low-water activity (...

Abstract A total of 600 freshly caught fish samples (200 each of Nile tilapia, flathead grey mullet, and African catfish) were collected from Manzala Lake, Egypt, and analyzed for determination of heavy metal residues using an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Metal concentrations (µg/g wet weight) were detected in all examined samples in quantities of 0.045, 0.0145, and 0.017 µg/g for Hg; 0....

Abstract Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a zoonotic virus that can cause acute hepatitis in humans. Besides the fecal–oral route, transmission can occur by consumption of undercooked pig liver. Genotype 3 is the most frequent genotype found in Europe. Studies on HEV in slaughter-age pigs have not been conducted in Serbia so far. Pork meat production and consumption in Serbia is on...

Not all Salmonella enterica serovars cause the same disease. S. enterica represents an incredibly diverse species comprising >2,600 unique serovars. While some S. enterica serovars are host-restricted, others infect a wide range of hosts. The diseases that nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) serovars cause vary considerably, with some serovars being significantly more likely to cause invasive...

Abstract In this study, an active antibacterial packaging film was developed by coating a polyethylene terephthalate/polyvinylidene chloride/retort casting polypropylene (PPR) plastic multilayer film with plantaricin BM‐1 and chitosan. The characteristics of the active packaging film and its antibacterial effect for chilled meat preservation were evaluated. Our results indicated that the barrier...

Noroviruses are a leading cause of foodborne illnesses worldwide. Although GII.4 strains have been responsible for most norovirus outbreaks, the assembled virus shell structures have been available in detail for only a single strain (GI.1). We present high-resolution (2.6- to 4.1-Å) cryoelectron microscopy (cryo-EM) structures of GII.4, GII.2, GI.7, and...

Abstract Sensory analysis is performed in USFDA testing laboratories to determine the decomposition status of seafood samples. Current alternatives are not always directly comparable to sensory testing. In this study, a novel method was explored using LC‐HRMS with untargeted analysis and a statistical model driven by sensory results via a script written in the R programming language. This allows...

Abstract Salmonella‐contaminated raw food is an important source of human food poisoning. Traditional methods for detecting Salmonella in meat involve many time‐consuming and laborious steps, preventing timely and effective control of the pathogen. In this study, a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay that targets serovar‐specific genes such as A7P63_0910 (Salmonella Indiana), sdfI (...

Controlling aflatoxigenic Aspergillus flavus (Af) and aflatoxins in grains and food during storage are great challenge to humans worldwide. Alcaligenes faecalis N1-4 isolated from tea rhizosphere soil can produce abundant antifungal volatiles, and greatly inhibited the growth of Af in un-contacted face-to-face dual culture tests. Gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry revealed that dimethyl...

Aflatoxin B1 (AfB1) is a carcinogenic mycotoxin that contaminates food and feed worldwide. We determined the AfB1-adsorption capability of non-viable Pleurotus eryngii mycelium, an edible fungus, as a potential means for removal of AfB1 from contaminated solutions. Lyophilized mycelium was produced and made enzymatically inert by sterilization at high temperatures . The material thus obtained...

Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) from the O104:H4 specific serotype caused a large outbreak of bloody diarrhea with some complicated cases of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) in Europe in 2011. The outbreak strain consisted in an EAEC capable to produce the Shiga toxin (Stx) subtype 2a, a characteristic from enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC). QseBC 2-component system detects AI-3/Epi/NE...

Abstract The purpose of this study was to assess the risk of zearalenone (ZEA) in corn meal produced and commercialized in State of Parana, Brazil. The extraction method carried out with a Romer Mycosep 226 column was found to be efficient due to addition of both diatomaceous earth and centrifuging during the cleaning step. From the total of 84 analyzed samples, 78.6% (n = 66) were found to be...

Abstract Rolling circle amplification (RCA) has been widely used to enhance detection signals as its long single‐stranded RCA products can provide multiple binding sites for signal probes for sensitive detections. In the current study, we employ atomic force microscopy (AFM) to monitor the RCA products during the course of the RCA process over time. Subsequently, the results of the RCA obtained...
