Biofilms in dairy manufacturing plant‐description, current concerns and methods of control
A shortage of information on the development and control of biofilms in dairy manufacturing plant means that to reduce biofilm problems, increasing the frequency of cleaning is currently the only option for dairy manufacturers.
Properties of the stainless steel substrate, influencing the adhesion of thermo-resistant streptococci
Laboratory scale Clean-In-Place (CIP) studies on the effectiveness of different caustic and acid wash steps on the removal of dairy biofilms.

The formation of biogenic amines in food by the microbial decarboxylation of amino acids can result in consumers suffering allergic reactions, characterized by difficulty in breathing, itching, rash, vomiting, fever, and hypertension.
Inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes/Flavobacterium spp. biofilms using chlorine: impact of substrate, pH, time and concentration
There were significant differences in cell death relating to chlorine concentration and exposure time for the cells attached to the SS, with solutions adjusted to pH 6·5 being more effective at reducing numbers.

It is indicated that cowpats can remain a significant source of E. coli in overland flow for more than 30 days and most of the E. Escherichia coli organisms eroded fromcowpats will occur as readily transportable single cells.
Review of Online Food Delivery Platforms and their Impacts on Sustainability
During the global 2020 COVID-19 outbreak, the advantages of online food delivery (FD) were obvious, as it facilitated consumer access to prepared meals and enabled food providers to keep operating.…
Morphotypic Conversion in Listeria monocytogenes Biofilm Formation: Biological Significance of Rough Colony Isolates
ABSTRACT Adherence to a stainless steel surface selected isolates of Listeria monocytogenes with enhanced surface colonization abilities and a change in phenotype from the common smooth colony…
Interaction of Escherichia coli and Soil Particles in Runoff
Results imply that in runoff generated by saturation-excess conditions, bacteria are rapidly transported across the surface and have little opportunity to interact with the soil matrix.
Ecological Behavior of Lactobacillus reuteri 100-23 Is Affected by Mutation of the luxS Gene
In vitro experiments revealed that neither the growth rate, nor the cell yield, nor cell survival in the stationary phase were compromised in the luxS mutant relative to the wild type and complemented mutant, demonstrating that LuxS influences important ecological attributes of L. reuteri 100-23C.
