Pediocin for Control of Listeria monocytogenes on Frankfurters

Iowa State University Animal Industry Report 2005. Application of pediocin, as ALTA 2341, on the surface of frankfurters before packaging reduced the population of contaminating Listeria monocytogenes and delayed growth of the remaining cells. Therefore, pediocin provides an effective intervention treatment for control of L. monocytogenes on frankfurters and contributes to improved safety of these products for consumers.
