Food Microbiology - Targeted Surveys - 2014 - 2016 Bacterial Pathogens in Fresh-Cut Ready-To-Eat Fruit - Final Report
A targeted survey on bacterial pathogens in fresh-cut ready-to-eat fruits analyzed 2,621 samples for Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7, and generic E. coli. No Salmonella, Shigella or E. coli O157:H7 were found in any of the samples. Listeria monocytogenes was found in fourteen samples and elevated levels of generic E. coli were found in one sample. The CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities. One Listeria monocytogenes positive sample resulted in a recall due to a possible link to a human illness case and also because it had been distributed to a high risk population group.
