EU - A new antimicrobial solution helps reduce Salmonella and other bacteria in poultry during processing and also eliminates the need for chlorine in the chilling tank, according to its manufacturer. Tougher regulatory standards and the increased reporting of food contamination in restaurants, supermarkets and processing plants has pushed companies to put a higher priority on safety, shelf life and cleanliness. The trend has fueled the demand for cleaning products that eliminate harmful bacteria like Salmonella. Chicken is the main source of food poisoning in Europe. Chicken is mainly affected by E coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. Of the three, E. coli and Salmonella are much more dangerous to human health. Source:
