Abstract:

The growth of Listeria monocytogenes, Aeromonas hydrophila and Yersinia enterocolitica on sliced roast beef packaged under vacuum or saturated CO2 controlled atmosphere conditions was measured. At -1.5°C, the pathogens declined in numbers in the controlled atmosphere packs but were able to grow under vacuum packaging. At 3°C, growth occurred, with maximum numbers being reached at the end of the product's storage life. The increased shelf life of sliced roast beef incubated under a carbon dioxide controlled atmosphere compared to vacuum-packaged beef did not, therefore, bring with it a concomitant risk associated with the increased growth of these three pathogens over the extended storage period.
