3M’s Petriflm Salmonella Test Validated By Independent Product Evaluator

May 19, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
According to the 3M company, nearly half of all pathogen tests in the U.S. food industry focus on Salmonella. With that in mind, the company announced that its new food safety test developed to detect the presence of deadly Salmonella bacteria in raw foods has won the approval of a health and safety evaluation organization. AOAC International has validated the effectiveness of 3M’s Petrifilm Salmonella Express System, launched last June, in detecting Salmonella in raw ground beef, cooked breaded chicken nuggets, raw ground chicken, raw ground pork, pasteurized liquid whole egg, fresh shrimp, fresh spinach, dry pet food and stainless steel. The Petrifilm system provides food processors and reference labs test results in 40 hours and biochemically confirmed results in 44 hours.
