Abstract:

The viability of Campylobacter jejuni strains FRI-CF 40lS and FRI-CF 25 inoculated in fresh and frozen beef hamburgers was investigated. Hamburgers were stored in the following conditions: 100% air at 4°C for 15 days, 100% CO2 and 100% N2 atmospheres at 4°C for 60 days and −18°C for 90 days. The data showed that 100% air was the most toxic atmosphere to C. jejuni strains. The C. jejuni populations decreased significantly faster (P ≤ 0.05) in the inoculated hamburgers in modified atmospheres than in those at −18°C. Fresh or frozen beef hamburgers contaminated by C. jejuni could always be a principal source of human campylobacteriosis.
