Summary and Implications

Combining heat pasteurization after packaging with addition of pediocin (ALTA™ 2341) as a antimicrobial treatment for frankfurters was more effective than either treatment alone for reducing the number of contaminating Listeria monocytogenes. Heat treatments were most effective for single link packages, intermediate for 5-link packages and least effective for 10-link packages. Combining these treatments provides for improved control of contaminating L. monocytogenes on frankfurters and increases the safety of these products for consumers.
