in the United States of America Preface The sixth edition of Modern Food Microbiology, like the previous edition, focuses on the general biology of the microorganisms that are found in foods Thus, the contents are suitable for its use in a second or subsequent course in a microbiology curriculum, or as a primary food microbiology course in a food science or food technology curriculum Although organic chemistry is a desirable prerequisite, it is not necessary for one to get a good grasp of the topics covered When used as a microbiology text, the following sequence has been found to be suitable A synopsis of the information in Chapter will provide students with a sense of the historical developments that have shaped this discipline and how it continues to evolve Memorization of the many dates and events is not recommended since much of this information is presented again in the respective chapters The material in Chapter is designed to provide a brief background on microorganisms in nature with emphasis on those that are important in foods This material can be combined with the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of growth in Chapter as they exist in food products and as they affect the common foodborne organisms Chapters to deal with specific food products and they may be covered to the extent desired with appropriate reviews of the relevant topics in Chapter Chapters 10 to 12 cover methods for culturing and identifying foodborne organisms and/or their products, and these topics may be dealt with in this sequence or just before foodborne pathogens The food preservation methods in Chapters 13 to 19 include information that goes beyond the usual scope of a second course Chapters 14 and 19 are new to the sixth edition Chapter 14 consolidates information from the previous edition that was scattered throughout several chapters, and it contains much new information on modified atmosphere packaging Chapter 19 covers high pressure and pulsed electric field processing of foods, and it contains two sections taken from the chapter on high temperature processing in the previous edition Chapters 20 and 21 deal with food sanitation, indicator organisms, and the HACCP system, and coverage of these topics is suggested before dealing with the pathogens Chapters 22 to 31 deal with the known (and some suspected) foodborne pathogens including their biology and methods of control Chapter 22 is also new to this edition and it is intended to provide an overview of the chapters that follow The material in this chapter that deals with mechanisms of pathogenesis is probably best dealt with when the specific pathogens are covered in their respective chapters For most semester courses with a 3-credit lecture and accompanying or credit laboratory, only about 70% of the material in this edition is likely to be covered The remainder is meant for reference purposes Citations for new and updated material can be found in the Reference

fresh waters It is a significant pathogen to fish, turtles, frogs, snails, and alligators and a human pathogen, especially in compromised hosts It is a common member of the bacterial flora of pigs Diarrhea, endocarditis, meningitis, soft-tissue infections, and bacteremia are caused by A hydrophila Virulent strains of A hydrophila produce a 52-kDa single polypeptide that possesses enterotoxic, cytotoxic, and hemolytic activities This multifunctional molecule displays immunological cross-reactivity with the cholera toxin.84 According to some investigators,103 it resembles aerolysin while others contend that it is aerolysin.7 Aerolysin is a pore- or channel-forming toxin that kills cells by forming discrete channels in their plasma membranes.9 Ion channels are created by the oligomerization of toxin molecules Cytotonic activity has been associated with an A hydrophila toxin, which induced rounding and steroidogenesis inY-I adrenal cells Also, positive responses in the rabbit ileal loop, suckling mouse, and CHO assays have been reported for a cytotonic toxin.25 A large number of studies have been conducted on A hydrophila isolates from various sources In one study, 66 of 96 (69%) isolates produced cytotoxins, whereas 32 (80%) of 40 isolates from diarrheal disease victims were toxigenic, with only 41% of nondiarrheal isolates being positive for cytotoxin production Most enterotoxigenic strains are VP (VogesProskauer test) and hemolysin positive and arabinose negative10 and produce positive responses in the suckling mouse, Y-I adrenal cell, and rabbit ileal loop assays In a study of 147 isolates from patients with diarrhea, % were enterotoxigenic, whereas only 70% of 94 environmental strains produced enterotoxin as assessed by the suckling mouse assay.11 All but four of the clinical isolates produced hemolysis of rabbit red blood cells Of 116 isolates from the Chesapeake Bay, 71% were toxic by the Y1I adrenal cell assay, and toxicity correlated with Iysine decarboxylase and VP reactions.50 In yet another study, 48 of 51 cultures from humans, animals, water, and sewage produced positive responses in rabbit ileal loop assays with 103 or more cells, and cell-free extracts from all were loop positive.2 Isolates from meat and meat products possessed biochemical markers that are generally associated with toxic strains of other species, with the mouse median lethal dose (LD50) being log 8-9 colony-forming units (cfu) for most strains tested.78 The latter investigators suggested the possibility that immunosuppressive states are important factors in food-associated infections by this organism, a suggestion that could explain the difficulty of establishing this organism as the sole etiological agent of foodborne gastroenteritis With regard to growth temperature and habitat, of 13 strains displayed growth at 0-5 C, of 13 at 100C, and at a minimum of 15°C.85 The psychrotrophs had optimum growth between 150C and 200C The maximum growth temperature for some strains was 40—450C with optimum at 35°C.42 Regarding distribution, the organism was found in all but 12 of 147 lotic and lentic habitats.42 Four of those habitats that did not yield the organism were either hypersaline lakes or geothermal springs Some waters contained up to 9,000/mL An ecological study of A hydrophila in the Chesapeake Bay revealed numbers ranging from less than 0.3/L to x 103/mL in the water column, and about 4.6 x 102/g of sediment.50 The presence of this organism correlated with total, aerobic, viable, and heterotrophic bacterial counts, and its presence was inversely related to dissolved O2 and salinity, with the upper salt level being about 15% Fewer were found during the winter than during the summer months Plesiomonas P shigelloides is found in surface waters and soil and has been recovered from fish, shellfish, other aquatic animals, as well as from terrestrial meat animals It differs from A hydrophila in having G + C content of DNA of 51%, versus 58-62% for A hydrophila It has been isolated by many investigators from patients with diarrhea and is associated with other general infections in humans It produces a heat-stable enterotoxin, and serogroup 0:17 strains react with Shigella group D antisera.1 In a study of 16 strains from humans with intestinal illness, R shigelloides did not always bind Congo red, the strains were noninvasive in HEp-2 cells, and they did not produce Shiga-like toxin on Vero cells.1 Although a low-level cytolysin was produced consistently, the mean LD50 for outbred Swiss mice was 3.5 x 108 cfu Heat-stable enterotoxin was not produced by either of the 16 strains, and it was the conclusion of these investigators that this organism possesses a low pathogenic potential.1 R shigelloides was recovered by Zajc-Satler et al.105 from the stools of six diarrheal patients It was believed to be the etiological agent, although salmonellae were recovered from two patients Two outbreaks of acute diarrheal disease occurred in Osaka, Japan, in 1973 and 1974, and the only bacterial pathogen recovered from stools was R shigelloides In the 1973 outbreak, 978 of 2,141 persons became ill, with 88% complaining of diarrhea, 82% of abdominal pain, 22% of fever, and 13% of headaches.96 Symptoms lasted to days Of 124 stools examined, 21 yielded R shigelloides 017:H2 The same serovar was recovered from tap water In the 1974 outbreak, 24 of 35 persons became ill with symptoms similar to those noted R shigelloides serovar 024:H5 was recovered from three of eight stools "virtually in pure culture."96 The organism was recovered from 39% of 342 water and mud samples, as well as from fish, shellfish, and newts A 15-year-old female contracted gastroenteritis, and hours after she took one tablet of trimethoprim-sulfadiazine,/? shigelloides could be recovered from her blood.79 The latter investigators noted that 10 of the previously known 12 cases of R shigelloides bacteremia were in patients who were either immunocompromised or presented with other similar conditions The 15-year-old had a temperature of 39°C and passed up to 10 watery stools daily The isolated strain reacted with S dysenteriae serotype antiserum, placing it in O group 22 of R shigelloides.11 Growth of R shigelloides has been observed at 100C,85 and 59% of 59 fish from Zaire waters contained the organism.98 In the latter study, the organism was found more in river fish than lake fish It appeared not to produce an enterotoxin since only of 29 isolates produced positive responses in rabbit ileal loops.87 Foodborne cases have not been documented, but the organism has been incriminated in at least two outbreaks.68 Bacteroides fragilis This obligately anaerobic, gram-negative bacterium is of potential significance as a foodborne pathogen since it produces an ileal loop-positive enterotoxin and is often associated with human diarrhea, as are A hydrophila and P shigelloides The enterotoxin was first demonstrated in 1984, and enterotoxic strains of B fragilis were first associated with human diarrhea in 1987 B fragilis is estimated to constitute between 1% and 2% of the human intestinal flora As a non-spore former, it is more sensitive to aerated environments than the clostridia and yet it has been recovered from municipal sewage This species differs from most other Bacteroides in being catalase positive, and like most others it can grow in the presence of 20% bile The B fragilis enterotoxin is produced as a single chain with a molecular weight of about 20,000 Da It differs from the classic bacterial enterotoxins in belonging to a class of zinc-binding metalloprotease, designated metzincins The enterotoxin has a wide range of protein substrates, and it undergoes autodigestion The intestinal damage that it causes is believed to be due, at least in part, to its proteolytic action It elicits a positive response in ileal loops of lambs and other animals (for more information see references 69 and 76) Since the etiological agent is identified in only around 50% of foodborne outbreaks in the United States, it is clear that previously unrec- ognized agents need to be included B fragilis along with Klebsiella pneumoniae54 and Enterobacter cloacae55 may warrant more attention The latter two organisms produce heatstable enterotoxins that are similar to the heatstable enterotoxin (ST) of E coll, and their potential significance in foods has been noted.97 Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae This bacterium (Erysipe'lothrix rhu-si-o-pa' -thi-ae) is phylogenetically closely related to Listeria (see Chapter 25), and like L monocytogenes, it causes disease in animals and humans It is the cause of erysipelas in swine and erysipeloid in humans Because of these similarities, it seems to be a "logical" candidate for a foodborne pathogen although such cases seem not to have been reported In general, erysipeloid is a localized disease of the hands and arms of handlers of fresh meat and fish, but systemic involvements are not unknown The organism is a facultative anaerobe, catalase negative (in contrast to the listeriae), oxidase negative, and generally produces H2S At least 23 serovars are known The only other species is E tonsillarum, which was separated from E rhusiopathiae based on its primary habitat of porcine tongues, and because of serovar differences.90 One of the first if not the first studies of the incidence of this organism in foods is that of Ternstrom and Molin,94 who in 1982 undertook a study of foodborne pathogens in meats in Sweden They examined 135 samples consisting of equal numbers of chicken, beef, and pork, and founds, rhusiopathiae in 36% and 13%, respectively, of pork and chicken, but none in beef In one plant, 54% of pork loins were positive, and many of the isolates possessed mouse virulence Of 112 retail pork samples examined in Japan, 34% contained this bacterium, and the 38 isolates represented 14 serovars.88 In a study of meat samples from 93 wild boar and 36 deer in Japan, 44% of the wild boar and 50% of the deer samples contained E rhusiopathiae, represent- ing 13 serovars.49 In a study of 750 chickens in Japan, Erysipelothrix spp were recovered from 15.7% of skin samples, and from 59.2% of 179 feather samples.71 E rhusiopathiae represented 273 of 297 isolates and the remainder were E tonsillarum In another study of 153 chicken samples in Japan, 30% contained Erysipelothrix spp with 65 of 67 being E rhusiopathiae.72 Klebsiella pneumoniae About hours after consuming a fast-food chain hamburger, an individual complained of not feeling well After hospital admission, this organism along with generic E coli was isolated from leftover hamburger and from the patient's blood, and the two matched by cultural methods.86 The strain of K pneumoniae was LT+ and ST- The coliform count in leftover hamburger was 3.0 x 106/g, and 1.9 x 105/g of bun Streptococcus iniae There have been at least six human infections by this organism traced to a fish product S iniae was first recognized in 1972 as the cause of a disease in Amazon dolphins.16 It was next recorded in Israel in 1986 as the cause of disease in tilapia and trout, and later seen in Taiwan and the United States.81 The first human case was recorded in 1991 in Texas, and the second in 1994 in Ottawa.16 Four human cases occurred in Ontario, Canada, in 1995-1996 and the organism was isolated from both fish and patients The fish was tilapia that was imported from fish farms in the United States S iniae appears to be a fish pathogen that causes disease in humans In the Ontario cases, it appeared that the organism entered the body through hand lesions It is beta-hemolytic on sheep blood Prion Diseases Prions are unique proteins in that they can convert other proteins into damaging ones by causing them to alter their shape The normal cell prion protein (PrP) exists in the brain cell membrane where it carries out some vital functions and is then degraded by proteases However, the pathogenic form is distorted and is resistant to proteases, and thus it accumulates in brain tissue and gives rise to disease (see below) It has been postulated that the distorted prion molecule, acting as a template, converts normal protein to a distorted form.7 These particles were named around 1982 by Stanley Prusiner, who was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in physiology for his pioneering work." Prions cause the disease scrapie in sheep, goats, and hamsters; and kuru in humans Another prion disease of humans in CreutzfeldtJakob disease (CJD) Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a prion disease of cattle and sheep that has in the past been referred to as "mad cow disease." All of these belong to a family of diseases called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) In all prion neurodegenerative diseases, the pathogenic forms are termed PrPres The latter has a strong tendency to aggregate into amyloid fibrils, and PrPres along with PrP cause nerve cell degeneration and lead to clinical signs of disease Although the TSEs are widely believed to be caused by prions, the possibility that a virus is the agent has been raised.26 BSE was first recognized in Great Britain in 1984 and specifically diagnosed in cattle in 1986 Four years later, over 14,000 confirmed cases out of a population of 10 million cattle had been recognized in Great Britain The epidemic seemed to peak around 1,000 new cases per week in 1993 By February 1998, a total of 172,324 cases were seen in cattle in the United Kingdom.7 A total of 600 cases were recorded in countries outside the United Kingdom with 256 (42.7%) in Switzerland.7 No confirmed cases of BSE in cattle have been seen in the United States Since humans are susceptible to the prions that cause CJD, the concern is whether humans can contract BSE from cattle In March 1996, a new variant of CJD (nvCJD, V-CJD) was reported in the United Kingdom in a small group of people, all of whom were much younger than most indi- viduals with CJD This prompted speculation that nvCJD had been contracted from cattle Normally, CJD appears in persons around age 60 or older, but nvCJD in the United Kingdom was found to afflict individuals in age from the late teens to the early 40s It has been suggested that nvCJD is the human equivalent of BSE,102 and the agents for BSE and nvCJD appear to be the same based on studies using mice.8 Between February 1994 and October 1995, 10 persons in the United Kingdom were found to have the new variant form of CJD, and died Most were under age 30 (in the United States, most CJD victims are over age 55; see below) Through April 6, 1998, a total of 24 cases of nvCJD had been recognized in the United Kingdom.7 For the 5-year period 1991-1995, 94 CJD deaths were recorded in the United States and were below age 55.17 None conformed to nvCJD BSE is thought to have been contracted by cattle through specified bovine offal (that contained brain, spinal cord, and the like) from infected animals, a practice that was banned in 1989 Using a mouse assay, prions could not be detected in beef muscle and milk from infected cattle.7 The incubation period for BSE is between and 15 years Regarding the heat destruction of the prions of nvCJD, studies are wanting However, data on scrapie and CJD have been presented and summarized.12 The latter investigator suggested that the brain tissue of a TSE-infected cow can be expected to contain about 1011 prions per gram Assuming that the nerve tissue is ground with muscle tissue, about 108 prions per gram may be expected in ground beef, or 1010 prions in a 100g portion To effect a 12-D reduction, 22D is required (10 + 12 = 22) Thus, some of the times in minutes needed to achieve a 22D were calculated as follows: D160°c = -0; D140°c =11.0; D120°c = 110.12 It has been suggested that there is a need for new processing or packaging technologies such that high-temperature short-time treatments can be carried out in order to render products free of prions.12 For more information, see references and 29 TOXIGENIC PHYTOPLANKTONS Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning This syndrome is contracted by eating toxic mussels, clams, oysters, scallops, or cockles These bivalves become toxic after feeding on certain dinoflagellates of which Gonyaulax catenella is representative of the U.S Pacific Coast flora Along the North Atlantic Coast of the United States and over to northern Europe, G tamarensis is found, and its poison is more toxic than that of G catenella G acatenella is found along the coast of British Columbia Masses or blooms of these toxic dinoflagellates give rise to the red tide condition of seas In 1996, about 150 manatees were killed during a red tide off the coast of Florida The paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) is saxitoxin, and its structural formula is as follows: year period 1973-1987, 19 outbreaks (with a mean of cases) were reported by state health departments to the CDC In 1990, there were 19 cases from two outbreaks in the states of Massachusetts and Alaska alone In the former, six fishermen became ill after eating boiled mussels that contained 4,280 jig/100 g saxitoxin.20 The raw mussels contained 24,400 jug/100 g.The 13 cases in Alaska resulted in death, and gastric contents from the victim who died contained 370 jLig/100 g of PSP toxin, whereas a sample of the butterclam that was consumed contained 2,650 ug/100 g.20The maximum safe level of PSP toxinis80|Lig/100g.20 Outbreaks of PSP seem to occur between the months of May and October on the U.S West Coast and between August and October on the East Coast Mollusks may become toxic in the absence of red tides Detoxification of mollusks can be achieved by their transfer to clean water, and a month or more may be required Ciguatera Poisoning Saxitoxin exerts its effect in humans through cardiovascular collapse and respiratory failure It blocks the propagation of nerve impulses without depolarization, and there is no known antidote It is heat stable, water soluble, and generally not destroyed by cooking It can be destroyed by boiling 3-4 hours at pH of 3.0 A D value at 2500F of 71.4 minutes in soft-shell clams has been reported.41 Symptoms of PSP develop within hours after ingestion of toxic mollusks, and they are characterized by paresthesia (tingling, numbness, or burning), which begins about the mouth, lips, and tongue and later spreads over the face, scalp, and neck, and to the fingertips and toes The mortality rate is variously reported to range from I%to22% Between 1793 and 1958, some 792 cases were recorded, with 173 (22%) deaths.66 In the 15- This syndrome is contracted from the ingestion of any one of over 300 fish species (barracuda, grouper, sea bass, etc.) that feed on herbivorous or reef fishes, which in turn feed on phytoplankton, especially the dinoflagellates The responsible dinoflagellate is Gambierdiscus toxicus, which produces ciguatoxin This toxin is concentrated more in fish organs such as the liver than in muscle tissue Upon ingestion of toxic fish, symptoms occur within 3-6 hours (about the same as for staphylococcal food poisoning), and consist of nausea and paresthesia about the mouth, tongue, and throat In general, the symptoms are quite similar to those for paralytic shellfish poisoning Respiratory paralysis is the consequence in the absence of appropriate therapy For the years 1983-1992, 129 outbreaks were reported to the CDC involving 508 persons with no deaths.13 An outbreak in Texas in 1997 involved 17 crew members of a cargo ship, and the vehicle food was barracuda.13 DomoicAcid This is an uncommon amino acid that antagonizes glutamic acid in the central nervous system It is produced by a diatom, Pseudonitzschia pungens, and its structure is as indicated (Diatoms are single-celled algae with walls of silicon.) Domoic acid causes amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP) following the consumption of mussels or scallops harvested from marine waters with a bloom of the diatom noted The first recorded outbreak of human cases occurred in eastern Canada in 1988 following the consumption of mussels from Prince Edward Island,80 and there were 107 victims and three deaths Since this episode, domoic acid-producing diatoms have been found in other parts of the world An ASP episode affected scallops in northwest Spain in 1996.65 The largest quantity of domoic acid was found in the hepatopancreas—from 52% to 88% of the total.65 During frozen storage, some domoic acid transferred to other parts of the scallops It was found that canning of scallops did not destroy this toxic principal According to Leira et al.,65 the Canadian regulatory level is 20 ug/g of tissue for fresh bivalve mollusks Pfiesteria piscicida This dinoflagellate was first recognized in the early 1990s as the cause of death of thousands offish in tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay It is an animal-like organism that produces potent toxins One toxin stuns fish within a few seconds, and the animals die within a few minutes It is heat stable Another toxin causes the fish epidermis to slough off The dinoflagellate reproduces sexually after a fish kill, and it can encyst The exact identity of the toxins is unclear, as are their effect on humans Those who have been exposed have a history of memory loss, confusion, acute skin burning, and usually general symptoms such as headache, skin rash, muscle cramps, and the like.14 REFERENCES

details, consult Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology APPENDIX C Biofilms The importance of biofilms to food safety and spoilage warrants a better understanding of their biology, structure, and function Reviews of the early history of our knowledge of these entities have been presented by Carpentier and Cerf,4 Costerton et al.,6 and Zottola.13 A biofilm consists of the growth of bacteria, fungi, and/or protozoa alone or in combination bound together by an extracellular matrix that is attached to a solid or firm surface Common examples include the slimy surfaces on rocks or logs in bodies of running water, dental plaques, and the slime layer on refrigerator-spoiled fresh meats and poultry They form on surfaces in large part because nutrients are found in higher concentrations than in the open liquid In laboratory studies, surface adherence is best in rich media.2 Attachment is facilitated by the microbial excretion of an exopolysaccharide matrix sometimes referred to as a glycocalyx Microcolonies form within this microenvironment in a manner that leads to microbial communities that allow water channels to form between and around the microcolonies The latter has been likened to a primitive circulatory system where nutrients are brought in and toxic by-products are carried out Microbial cells in liquids that are not in a biofilm are in a planktonic (free floating) state From the standpoint of food safety and spoilage, biofilms are important because of their accumulation on foods, food utensils, and surfaces; and because of the difficulty of their removal While under natural conditions biofilms tend to be composed of mixed cultures, pure culture systems are often used in laboratory studies Some of the solid surfaces employed to study foodborne bacteria include floor sealant, glass slides, nylon, polycarbonate, polypropylene, rubber, stainless steel, and Teflon Glass and stainless steel are widely used From the many studies that have been carried out on biofilm formation in food environments, the following summaries can be made: • Although biofilm formation by single cultures in rich media (e.g., tryptic soy broth) may be evident after 24 hours when appropriate growth temperatures are used, three to four days or more are necessary for maximum development On glass slides in a culture medium for three days at 24°C, Listeria monocytogenes grew to about log10 6-7/cm2.1 • Microorganisms in biofilms are considerably more resistant to removal by commonly used cleaning and sanitizing agents • In general, microorganisms in biofilms are more difficult to destroy by lethal agents, i.e., they are protected by the biofilm matrix.57 • The attachment of a given pathogen to surfaces may be aided by the formation of a mixed-culture biofilm.3912 • Microorganisms in biofilms may exhibit different physiologic reactions than planktonic forms, and the biofilm may contain cells in the viable but nonculturable state.45 • The use of cleansers and sanitizers in combination rather than singly appears to be more effective in removing biofilm growth.111 • Not all strains of the same species are equally capable of initiating biofilm formation;10 and surface attachment and biofilm development are different processes.8 REFERENCES Arizcun, C , et al 1998 Effect of several decontamination procedures on Listeria monocytogenes growing in biofilms J
