Salmonella & Cronobacter in Dairy Powders
Salmonella and Cronobacter are two pathogenic bacterial genera that are particularly adept at surviving for long periods of time when in a desiccated state. Dehydrated cells of these bacteria become readily attached to dust particles and easily disseminated in a food processing environment. When gaining access to dairy powders such pathogens can exit quiescent animation and can begin multiplying when such powders are re-hydrated in infant formula or other moist products. This can lead to potentially deadly outcome for high risk consumers. In this webinar, Dr. Doug Marshall will detail the exceptional biology of these microbes, their incidence in dairy manufacturing environments, and methods for detection and control.
