Abstract

The antimicrobial efficacy of plant-derived compounds (cinnamaldehyde, carvacrol and citral) against Escherichia coliO157:H7 was evaluated during the flume-tank-washing process and subsequent storage of organic leafy greens. Organic baby and mature spinach, and romaine and iceberg lettuce, inoculated with a cocktail of E.coliO157:H7, were washed for 1 or 2min in 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5% concentrations of the compounds and stored at 4C. Pathogen survivors were enumerated on days 0, 1 and 3. Significant (P
