Thermal inactivation studies of Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella, and Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat chicken-fried beef patties

The May edition of the Journal of Food Protection studies D- and z-values of Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella, and Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat chicken-fried beef patties.

Inoculated meat was packaged in sterile bags, which were immersed in a circulated water bath and held at 55, 57.5, 60, 62.5, 65, 67.5, and 70 degrees C for different lengths of time, and D- and z- values calculated.

The results of this study can be used by food processors to validate their processes and help eliminate pathogenic bacteria associated with chicken-fried beef products.
