The efficacy of adding presumptive Lactobacillus sakei (LS) strain 10-EGR-a, the most inhibitory from among 12 ground beef Lactobacillus isolates, to inhibit growth by Escherichia coli O157:H7 and multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella (serovars Newport and Typhimurium) was evaluated in a beef-derived broth medium at 10 degrees C and in fresh raw ground beef at 10 and 5 degrees C. Pathogen inhibition was observed in the broth medium at both high (10(8):10(5) to 10(7):10(5)) and low (10(6):10(5… CONTINUE READING
