Current hot issues l.jpg
Current Hot Issues

  • Mercury in fish (California Proposition 65 case)

  • Environmental contaminants and pollution

  • GM foods (they’re back…)

  • Food additives (colorants)

  • Microbial contamination


Risks of microbial contamination in aquatic food products l.jpg
Risks of microbial contamination in aquatic food products

  • Raw molluscan shellfish – Vibrio spp., bacterial toxins, fecal pathogens

  • Raw fish – Parasites and various

    bacteria (killed by heating)


Risks of microbial contamination in aquatic food products4 l.jpg
Risks of microbial contamination in aquatic food products

  • Ready-to-eat and smoked fish -

    • Listeria monocytogenes

    • Vibrio spp.

    • Clostridium botulinum (regulatory issue)

    • Mesophiles from humans or warm blooded animals (Salmonella spp., E. coli)


Listeria monocytogenes l.jpg
Listeria monocytogenes

  • Gram-positive bacterium, motile by means of flagella

  • Isolated from soil, sediments, estuaries, and other environmental sources

  • Grows at temperatures as low as –0.1°C and hıgh salt (up to 10%)


Listeriosis l.jpg
Listeriosis

  • Asymptomatic or mild flu-like symptoms

  • Immunocompromised:septicemia or

    meningoencephalitis

  • Infants: spontaneous miscarriage, stillbirth, development of meningitis within a few days of birth

  • Fatality: elderly and children if untreated


Listeria in foods l.jpg
Listeria in foods

  • The vast majority of cases are sporadic,

    making epidemiological links to food

    very difficult (CDC, 1987)


Projected number of listeria outbreaks l.jpg
Projected number of Listeria outbreaks

  • 2,500 cases per year. Possibly 500 deaths

  • Overall prevalence in RTE food supply is 1.8% (31,705 tested)

  • Highest levels >102/g in lunch meat and smoked fish


Listeria in seafoods l.jpg
Listeria in seafoods

  • The incidence of L. monocytogenes in cold-smoked or cured salmon ranges from 6 to 50%

  • FDA/USDA risk assessments estimates are that 15% of all smoked fish is contaminated with L. monocytogenes

  • 17% of vacuum-packed crawfish tails

    and 25.8% of lightly pickled fish are contamınated


Listeria contamination patterns l.jpg
Listeria contamination patterns

  • Rate of contamınatıon of raw finfish for smoking range from 2 to 30%

  • 12% of raw shellfish and 8% of raw crab

  • 28-44% of environmental samples (floor, surfaces, drains) from smoked fish plants

  • 4.5% of meat processing plant

    refrigerators

  • 3.1% retail refrigerators


Temperature abuse makes listeria problem worse l.jpg
Temperature abuse makes Listeria problem worse

  • 26% of refrigerators average >8C (France)

  • 33.3% of refrigerators > 7ºC (UK)

  • 55% of domestic and 32% of retail store refrigerators > 9ºC (Greece)

  • Refrigerators of 70% elderly consumers

    >6ºC (UK)


Regulation of listeria l.jpg
Regulation of Listeria

  • zero tolerance for L. monocytogenes in cooked and ready-to-eat food by USDA-FSIS and FDA

  • Both agencies at theır dıscretıon, can hold or detain products at the food processing plant, request a voluntary recall or seize products. Numerous seafood producers have ınıtıated recalls, even ın cases where there have been no ıllnesses.


Recent recalls of trout products l.jpg
Recent recalls of trout products

  • Food recall involves: cost of product, cost to cover, lost markets, and damage of company’s reputation.

  • Direct costs of recall are ~10% of total


Seafood packaging l.jpg
Seafood packaging

  • FDA concern with safety of vacuum packaging

  • Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)

  • MAP alter the gaseous environment in the immediate vicinity of the product

  • Slows microbial growth and enzyme activity

  • MAP may inhibit the growth of L. monocytogenes in fish at refrigerated temperatures


Methods l.jpg
Methods

  • L. monocytogenes strains

    ATCC 19114, 7644, 19113

  • Raw and smoked rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

  • Enumeration on modified Oxford medium and plate count agar


Methods17 l.jpg
Methods

  • Packaging method

    - air-packaging

    - vacuum packaging

    - nitrogen gas flushing

    - nitrogen flushing & vacuum packaging

  • Storage at 3°C or 7°C (mild thermal abuse)

  • Sensory evaluation

Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions

  • 3  C: L. monocytogenes in fresh and smoked trout remained at initial levels during storage. MAP had no effect.

  • 7  C: L. monocytogenes increased up to 2 log in fresh trout, 4 log in smoked trout during storage. MAP had no effect.

  • MAP did not prevent the growth of endogenous microflora


Conclusions29 l.jpg
Conclusions

  • Fresh trout: aroma of Nitrogen & Nitrogen-Vacuum packaging remained acceptable for 20 days. Product would be spoiled before Listeria levels would become high.

  • Smoked trout:acceptable aroma for 30 days.


Conclusions30 l.jpg
Conclusions

  • Smoked trout with moderately high initial levels of Listeria (log 2) could be unsafe in 10-15 days at mild thermal abuse (7oC) and not appear to be spoiled.
