Experiments on salmonella decontamination of broiler carcasses with lactic acid, L-cysteine, and hydrogen peroxide were performed. Treatment with lactic acid (1%) and hydrogen peroxide (.5%) resulted in a 4-log cycle reduction in colony forming units of Salmonella typhimurium both with pure cultures and with artificially inoculated broiler carcasses. L-cysteine was nonbactericidal in these experiments.
