Project Title:
Competitive Inhibition of E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella spp. in Ground Beef Products
Stated Project Objectives:
The overall objective of this study is to eliminate E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella in ground beef products by competitive inhibition by lactic acid bacteria and thus reduce the number of outbreaks associated with these products. Background Information about the Need for This Research
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), E. coli O157:H7 causes an estimated 73,000 cases of illness each year and 61 deaths. Salmonella causes 40,000 reported cases with the estimated actual number of cases being 20 times more than the reported amount. More than 1000 deaths occur each year due to Salmonella infection making it the deadliest food-borne pathogen. Ground beef products are commonly implicated in outbreaks of Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7. While there are many intervention technologies applied to beef carcasses, very few interventions exist that have been validated to be effective in Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are inhibitory towards various pathogenic bacteria and spoilage organisms during growth and refrigerated storage in associative cultures (Brashears et al. 1998; Brashears and Gilliland, 1997; Brashears et al. 1996; Brashears and Durre; Dahiya and Speck, 1967; Gilliland and Speck, 1975; Gilliland and Speck, 1977; Martin and Gilliland, 1980; Price and Lee, 1969; Kao and Frazier, 1966; Shahani et al., 1976). The inhibitory actions were due to the production of acid, hydrogen peroxide, or bacteriocins. Recent reviews of the inhibitory actions of LAB towards food- borne pathogens were done by Barefoot and Nettles (1993), Klaenhammer (1988) and Hopzafel et. al (1995). These reviews suggest that pathogens and spoilage organisms in fermented foods such as yogurt and summer sausage may be inhibited during growth of LAB. Additionally, inhibition can occur during refrigerated storage. Growth of lactic acid bacteria in a fresh meat product would not be desirable, but adding the cells to the meat held at refrigeration temperature could still give an inhibitory effect due to the production of inhibitory substances by the cells. It is possible to select strains of lactic acid bacteria that do not grow at refrigeration temperatures, but produce inhibitory substances. The production of inhibitory compounds by the LAB can continue during storage of the product so there is continuous inhibition of the pathogen during the storage period instead of a one-time reduction that occurs with other antimicrobial interventions (Gilliland and Villegas, 1998; Jaroni and Brashears, 2000). In a previous study in our laboratory, several strains of lactic acid bacteria were isolated. This strain was selected for its ability to completely eliminate E. coli O157;H7, Salmonella, and Listeria monocytogenes in laboratory media. The unique properties of these organisms is that they eliminate the pathogens at refrigeration temperatures, but it do not grow during refrigerated storage. The organisms are GRAS and can be added to A comprehensive study was conducted in our laboratory with this LAB to determine if it inhibited Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat meat products. All pathogen growth was completely eliminated for the entire 60-day duration of the study in cold cuts and in frankfurters. A second study was conducted with non-pathogen inoculated products to determine if the LAB had a detrimental effect on the sensory properties of the products. For the entire 60-day duration of the sensory study, there were no differences in the control samples and the inoculated samples. Plate counts of LAB in both studies indicated that there was no growth of the LAB during storage, but there was significant inhibition. Further studies have indicated that a protein-based product, most likely a bacteriocin, is produced by this organism at refrigeration Reduction of E. coli O157:H7 is an important concern in the beef industry. Ground beef processors currently do not have effective intervention steps in ground beef processes. Intervention steps need to be investigated to ensure the safety of the ground beef supply. This research indicates that the use of competitive inhibition in ground beef products could be an important hurdle to reduce E. coli O157 and Salmonella in the ground beef supply. Achievement of the Specific Objectives Stated in the Proposal
All objectives in the original proposal have been achieved. Materials and Methods
The treatments in this study were, 1) ground beef containing both the pathogen and the LAB, 2) ground beef containing only the pathogen, and 3) a background control containing Frozen concentrated cultures of the lactic acid bacteria culture were prepared as described by Brashears et al. (1998) and combined into a “cocktail” mixture and added to the food products. Products were inoculated with the pathogen by adding a cocktail mixture of Salmonella spp. or E. coli O157:H7 (two separate studies) containing approximately 1 x 104 cfu/ml. Streptomycin resistant (1000ug/mg) strains of the pathogens were used to facilitate recovery of injured cells. The use of these organisms has been validated to be equivalent to non-resistant cells and recovery rates are similar to recovery on non-selective media (Brashears et. al., 2001). Fresh ground beef samples were obtained from the Texas Tech University Meat Laboratory. It is important to use ground beef containing the natural flora to determine if the added LAB competes well in that particular environment. Cells of the LAB were added to the ground beef by pouring a designated amount of a diluted frozen concentrated culture to the products to yield a population of 1 x 107 cfu/g and thoroughly mixing. Background controls received no treatment. All samples were vacuum packaged. Samples were stored for 10 days at 5oC. Samples were taken on days 4, 8 and 12 and the total number of pathogens present were determined by plating on non-selective media (Trypticase Soy Agar) containing 1000 ug/ml streptymycin on a Spiral Biotech Spiral Plating System. The numbers were compared to the control that contained only added pathogen, no LAB, to determine the amount of inhibition. Results and Discussion
Selection of Antibiotic Resistant Organisms Because we proposed the use of nalidixic acid resistant strains of the pathogens to facilitate recovery of injured cells in nonselective media in the original proposal, we plated uninoculated ground beef on TSA plus 50ug nalidixic acid to ensure that no background flora in the meat would grow on the media. Because a recent project using pork indicated that there were significant background flora in raw pork products that grew in the presence of nalidixic acid, we also tested the beef in media containing streptomycin. We had to identify an antibiotic that suppressed background flora in the raw product. The raw ground beef samples obtained from several sources were plated on TSA with the following antibiotic concentrations: The plates were incubated at 37 C for 48 hrs. There was evident growth for all dilutions plated on both the 50 ug and 100 ug nalidixic acid plates. Therefore this antibiotic was not used because it allowed the growth of the background flora. There was no observed growth for any of the plates containing streptomycin for either the 1000 ug or 2000 ug concentrations. Therefore the lower concentration of streptomycin was used in the study to inhibit background flora in the meat while allowing streptomycin resistant pathogens to grow and recover. To validate this observation, more ground beef samples were obtained and plated on plates containing streptomycin. The results from this beef sample were the same as the results observed before. There was growth on the 100 ug nalidixic acid plates but there was no growth on either the 1000 ug or 2000 ug streptomycin plates. In addition to confirming that the background flora would not grow on the media, we also had to be sure that the LAB would not grow and that the pathogens would grow. Four different cultures of E. coli O157 and 2 different lactic acid bacteria cultures on pre-poured TSA plates. One set of plates contained 1000 ug streptomycin and the other set contained 2000 ug of streptomycin. After 48 hrs. of incubation at 37C all of the E. coli cultures grew confirming their antibiotic resistance. Neither of the lactic acid bacteria cultures grew. Therefore the media containing 1000 ug of streptomycin was used to suppress the background flora in We stored samples at 5 C for 12 days to determine the impact of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) on the growth and inhibition of E. coli O157:H7. After 4 days of storage, one of the LAB cultures, M35 resulted in significantly lower populations of E. coli O157:H7 compared to the control samples (Figure 1). After 8 days of storage, the other 3 LAB cultures resulted in significant differences between control samples and treated samples with more than a 1.5 log difference (>90% reduction) between the control samples and the treated samples. A more inhibitory effect was observed against Salmonella spp. After 4 days of storage, M35, LA51 and D3 resulted in significant reductions of Salmonella compared to the control samples (Figure 2). Each of these resulted in a 1.5 log reduction after 4 days of storage at refrigeration temperatures. After 8 days of storage, M35 resulted in a 3.5 log difference compared to the control and even more inhibition was observed on day 12 with more than a 4 log reduction. All LAB cultures except for L7 resulted in significantly lower populations of Salmonella compared to the control on days 8 and 12. While we did observe significant reductions in this process, a higher amount of reduction is desirable. Currently we are continuing with this study to examine the behavior of E. coli and Salmonella in the presence of a combined cocktail containing all 4 cultures at a higher inoculation level. Preliminary evidence indicates that we can achieve more than a 3 log reduction of E. coli and a 4 log of Salmonella using this Additionally, we plan to study the effects on the sensory properties of the product in non-inoculated samples to determine if the use of the LAB is feasible from a quality Publications

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB), similar to cultures used to produce cheese and yogurt, were added to ground beef to determine if the cultures inhibited E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella during refrigerated storage. Some of the cultures reduced E. coli O157:H7 by more than 90% and Salmonella by more than 99.9%. Adding the cultures to ground beef may be an effective strategy to control food-borne pathogens in ground beef Figure 1. Competitive inhibition of E. coli O157 at 5 C in during
