Conventional and experimental washing formulations were applied with a commercial flatbed brush washer under conditions representative of commercial practice to determine their efficacy in decontaminating apples inoculated with a nonpathogenic Escherichia coli strain. Golden Delicious apples (18 kg) inoculated with E. coli were mixed with approximately 109 kg of uninoculated Fuji apples (distinctly different in appearance) in a wet dump tank containing 1,325 liters of water at 20 degrees C for… CONTINUE READING
