Abstract: In the latest issue of International Food & Meat Topics, Ecolab food safety experts Jeremy Adler, PhD., and John Hanlin, PhD., discuss control strategies to protect food products from pathogens and cross-contamination. Pathogens such as salmonella, shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli, and Listeria monocytogenes have been found on a wide variety of food contact and non-food contact surfaces within food processing plants and can cause illness and possibly death if consumed on contaminated product. Dr. Adler and Dr. Hanlin discuss sanitary design, the challenges of biofilms, cleaning and sanitation strategies, and effective environment monitoring.
