The Food Hygiene and Sanitation PDG presents BIOFILM & FOOD SAFETY
Mar 23, 2017
This presentation will discuss the nature of biofilm formation in general and the effects that growth in a biofilm can have on bacterial cells and their resistance to inactivation using traditional sanitation treatments.
Biofilm formation in food processing facilities enhances the ability of pathogens to survive harsh environments, to resist antimicrobial treatments, and to spread and persist in the food processing environment. Thus, the formation of biofilms is a food safety concern since persistent low-level contamination of foods can occur, and is reported to be one of the main factors in failure of sanitation treatments to remove or inactivate human pathogens on produce surfaces.
