What should the industry do?
Intralytix, a Maryland-based research company, suggests using
highly effective bacteriophage-based interventions like the new
and recently FDA and USDA approved EcoShield PX™ to fight
outbreaks of foodborne illnesses caused by E.coli contamination.
Research conducted by the company's scientists and dozens of
universities around the world show bacteriophages provide a
natural, non-toxic, safe and effective means of significantly
reducing or even eliminating pathogenic contamination of meat,
poultry and all other foods.
An unmatched food safety success story "We've had great
success with our original formulation of EcoShield," said Greg
Strang, the Director of Intralytix' Food Safety Division. "Our
research team replaced two of the three phages in the original
'cocktail' of ingredients, making it even more effective.
Our new formula EcoShield PX™ is more potent and is approved
for use on most foods, including direct application on beef
carcasses, primals, sub-primals, parts and trim. Even more
importantly, it can now be used on ground beef, one of the
most difficult-to-treat products in the industry."
New Ecoshield PX™
helps the industry do
even more to protect
itself & consumers.
For some time, we have been warning food industry
companies, sapecifically meat and poultry companies,
about the necessity to appropriately protect
themselves and their brands against the increasing
risks posed by food recalls.”
