Cross-contamination, modeling, and risk assessment for pathogens on fresh-cut produce
Cross-contamination during washing has been identified as an important factor in controlling risk in leafy greens. Research with foodborne pathogens at pilot plant scale or larger can be problematic,
Monitoring of transfer and internalization of Escherichia coli from inoculated knives to fresh cut cucumbers (Cucumis sativus L.) using bioluminescence imaging
Results showed that the initial two slices resulted in greater bacterial transfer, and the contaminated area on the surface of cucumber slices decreased during the storage period, which can be attributed to the death and internalization of E. coli.
Predicting the Growth of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Typhimurium in Diced Celery, Onions, and Tomatoes during Simulated Commercial Transport, Retail Storage, and Display.
Findings from this study will be particularly useful in assessing the risk associated with consumption of diced celery, tomatoes, and onions and in designing effective packaging strategies to minimize pathogen growth in fresh-cut produce.


Modeling transfer of Listeria monocytogenes from slicer to deli meat during mechanical slicing.
Empirical models were developed to describe the transfer of L. monocytogenes between a meat slicer and ham slices, and the models are both microbial load and contamination route dependent, which might limit their applications to certain conditions.
Transfer of Listeria monocytogenes during mechanical slicing of turkey breast, bologna, and salami.
As a result of cross-contamination, those delicatessen-sliced meats that allow growth of L. monocytogenes during prolonged refrigerated storage likely pose an increased public health risk for certain consumers.
Tracking and modeling norovirus transmission during mechanical slicing of globe tomatoes.
High hydrostatic pressure processing reduces Salmonella enterica serovars in diced and whole tomatoes.

The results showed that the empirical models developed in this study were reasonably accurate in describing the transfer trend/pattern of L. monocytogenes between the blade and salami slices, and may be further applied to predict the 3 or 4 log CFU level (and below) cross-contamination of salami slicing process.
Modeling the growth of Salmonella in cut red round tomatoes as a function of temperature.
A mathematical model was developed to describe the growth of Salmonella on cut tomatoes at various temperatures and compared favorably with a Salmonellosis growth model for raw poultry developed by the laboratory.
Modelling transfer of Listeria monocytogenes during slicing of 'gravad' salmon.
Transfer of Listeria monocytogenes during slicing of turkey breast, bologna, and salami with simulated kitchen knives.
In response to continued concerns regarding Listeria cross-contamination during the slicing of deli meats, a series of specially prepared grade 304 and 316 stainless steel kitchen knife blades was
