Food Microbiology - Targeted Surveys - 2014 - 2016 Bacterial Pathogens in Pre-Packaged, Fresh-Cut Ready-To-Eat Vegetables - Final Report
A targeted survey on bacterial pathogens in pre-packaged, fresh-cut, ready-to-eat vegetables analyzed 2,675 samples for Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7, and generic E. coli. Salmonella, Shigella, E. coli O157:H7, and generic E. coli were not found in any samples. Six samples were found to contain Listeria monocytogenes. The CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities for the Listeria monocytogenes contaminated samples resulting in product recalls and/or the implementation of corrective actions by the processing facilities. No illnesses were reported in association with any of the Listeria monocytogenes positive samples.
