A recent U.S. salmonellosis outbreak was epidemiologically associated with consumption of imported fresh mangos. Studies were conducted to simulate the commercial heat disinfestation method used to eliminate tephritid fly larvae from mangos, as well as subsequent product cooling procedures, to assess whether this process promotes internalization of… CONTINUE READING
