  • Efficacy of selected probiotic cultures to inhibit Enterobacter sakazakii ATCC 12868 in model reconstituted dairy products

    Enterobacter sakazakii ATCC 12868 ( ES ) is a very dangerous opportunistic organism likely to contaminate post-pasteurised dry milk products with a high mortality rate (40–80%). This study evaluated the antimicrobial efficacy of probiotics against ES in reconstituted dried infant formula. Initial study at 30ºC showed that Enterococcus ...

  • The significance of thyroid cancer in reactor safety assessment

    The risk of thyroid cancer from reactor accidents has long been a salient factor in the analysis of nuclear reactor safety. This risk arises largely from the abundance of iodine-131 in the fission product inventory. Iodine disperses widely if released into the atmosphere and could enter the human food-chain, particularly through consumption of contaminated cows' milk. Iodine entering the human ...

  • Mono nov pumps cuts paper mill costs

    The mill was facing production losses as high as 5% because the existing pumps were fitted with flushing shaft seals. The flushing water was diluting the coating mixture and upsetting the viscosity of the clay (500cP to 2,000cP), resulting in a marked reduction in the quality of the finished product. The coating clay contains 55-75% solids, including kaolin, marble, carbonates and titanium oxide, ...

  • Lead and zinc content of cows' milk affected by varying traffic density

    This study was conducted to investigate the influence of vehicle emissions on zinc and lead content of cow's milk, grazing at 15 different locations near to roadsides in Sakarya, Turkey. The results obtained for zinc were between 1262 μg kg−1 and 6566 μg kg−1. An acceptable range of zinc content from various sides confirmed the absence of possible toxicological risks in this region. The lead ...

  • Retail survey of brazilian milk and minas frescal cheese and a contaminated dairy plant to establish prevalence, relatedness, and sources of listeria monocytogenes isolates

    A study was designed to recover Listeria monocytogenes from pasteurized milk and Minas frescal cheese (MFC) sampled at retail establishments (REs) and to identify the contamination source(s) of these products in the corresponding dairy processing plant. Fifty milk samples (9 brands) and 55 MFC samples (10 brands) were tested from REs located in ...

  • Use of quick diagnostic methods in milking

    The objective of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of bioluminescence measurement and analysis of swabs taken from the surfaces of the equipment for determination of the hygienic state of a milking machine when biofilm is present on the surfaces. In addition the measurement of electrical conductivity of milk as a tool to detect cows with subclinical mastitis was examined. In the ...

  • Biocontrol of aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin b1 production in corn

    Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus are the most important aflatoxin-producing filamentous fungi. They can occur in several plant products, like spices, cereals and oily seeds (Jelinek 1998, Pittet, 1998 and Lewellyn, 1992). Aflatoxins (AF) are secondary metabolites with a high carcinogenic potential, especially in liver tissue. In addition the aflatoxins possess an acute toxicity at ...

  • Seed-applied insecticides inconsistently affect corn forage in continuous corn

    Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera Le Conte) is the major insect pest in the corn phase of a corn (Zea mays L.) silage–perennial forage rotation. Dairy producers may prefer seed-applied instead of soil-applied insecticides for rootworm control because of ease of use and additional control of some other soil insect pests. The objective of the 2-yr NY field study was to evaluate ...
