THE large commercial losses caused by condemnation of spoiled consignments, -L complaints from consumers about the quality of outwardly sound material, and the identification of a &dquo; pasteurized &dquo; can of ham as the cause of an outbreak of salmonella food poisoning (Wildman, Nicol & Tee, 1951) have lately aroused considerable interest in Britain in the bacteriology of this product. Consequently, we have tried in this paper to review results obtained, in Britain, from the bacteriological…

Effect of a Short Cold Storage on Frequency of Spoilage in Pasteurized (Perishable) Canned Meat Products Subjected to the Incubation Test
Investigations were carried out in 6 meat processing plants in Poland on the effect of a short storage period on the results of the incubation test of various canned pasteurized meat products. From
Variations in the composition of the flora on a Wiltshire cured bacon side
TLDR
The composition of the flora of bacon from each of three factories was slightly different; there was no appreciable difference attributable to the methods of maturation.
Microbial spoilage of luncheon meat prepared in an impermeable plastic casing.

TLDR
It appears that growth of the Streptococcus is dependent upon the denitrifying activities of the initial Bacillus flora reducing the concentration of nitrite ion to non-inhibitory levels.
Radiation Sterilization of Prototype Military Foods
TLDR
Evidence provided by swelling, toxicity, and recoverable C. botulinum with 6,350 cans demonstrated that 4.5 Mrad was more than adequate as a sterilization dose and a phenomenon similar to heat activation of spores occurred at sublethal radiation doses.
Microbial spoilage of pre-cooked potato-topped pies.
TLDR
The results suggest that pre-cooked potato-topped pies held at inappropriate temperatures represent a potential public health risk.
Microbial pregression in sliced vacuum packaged bacon at refrigeration temperatures.

TLDR
Staphylococci tended to die out during storage of bacons cured by the 2 methods and coagulase positive staphylitis were not isolated, and the order of dominance was Micrococcus sub-group 3 and atypical streptobacteria in A; Streptococcus Group N and Gram positive rods in B.
A proteus inconstans which produces 'cabbage odour' in the spoilage of vacuum-packed sliced bacon.
The isolation and identification of a species of Proteus inconstans capable of producing ‘cabbage odour’ spoilage of sliced vacuum-packed bacon are described. Gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric
THE OCCURRENCE AND GROWTH OF STAPHYLOCOCCI ON PACKED BACON, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS
TLDR
Staphylococcus aureus occurs and survives in bacon curing brines and may be found on shop sliced and on vacuum packed bacon and should be kept in a cool place.
The effect of sodium chloride, potassium nitrate and sodium nitrite on the recovery of heated bacterial spores *
Summary The ability of aerobic and anaerobic spores, after various degrees of heating, to produce macrocolonies in media containing different concentrations of sodium chloride, potassium nitrate
Microbiology of Frozen Orange Concentrate
TLDR
Maximum recovery of viable cells of one dried preparation rehydrated in malate solution was obtained in 0.05 M malate at pH 6.0, and at a temperature of 30C.

TLDR
It would seem to be the most logical method of destroying Salmonella in liquid egg, i.e., if possible to do so without affecting the desirable process, pasteurization.

TLDR
Alpha-type streptococci have been isolated from foods incriminated in outbreaks of food poisoning where no other agents could be ascribed as the cause and they were found to be identical with those of enterococci.
