Growth Potential and Kinetics of L. Monocytogenes on Vegetables and Fruits and Characterization of Factors Affecting the Persistence


<p>a. Determine the growth potential and kinetics of L. monocytogenes on major classes of whole and fresh-cut produce as impacted by storage temperature. b. Determine environmental factors and produce physical/chemical characteristics on the growth potential and kinetics of L. monocytogenes and the association with produce quality and shelf life. c. Evaluate the effects of the indigenous microbial community from produce on the growth of L. monocytogenes and characterization of bacterial strains that potentially enhance or inhibit growth/persistence of L. monocytogenes.</p>
