New Application Data Sheet: Reduction of Listeria on shrimp by PhageGuard Listex

PhageGuard Listex is a highly concentrated solution containing phage P100. The phage P100 used in PhageGuard Listex is selected from nature for its specific killing ability against Listeria monocytogenes. PhageGuard Listex targets all species of Listeria found in food processing environments.

Scallops are filter feeders, hence if Listeria is present in the water, it can also be present in the product, introducing it to the processing environment. Further contamination of the final product can occur during processing, like in the cutting step or due to cross contamination. These products are especially at risk since Listeria continues to grow at refrigerated storage temperatures.
