Foodborne pathogens are responsible of foodborne diseases and food poisoning and thus pose a great threat to food safety. These microorganisms can adhere to surface and form a biofilm composed of an extracellular matrix. This extracellular matrix protects bacterial cells from industrial environmental stress factors such as cleaning and disinfection operations. Moreover, during these environmental stresses, many bacterial species can enter a viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state. VBNC cells are… CONTINUE READING
