What is it about?

A study was conducted to evaluate a new organic produce wash composed of a new combination of organic acids and hydrogen peroxide. The wash, composed of lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide and one or more fruit acids, was challenged against Salmonella enterica, E. coli O157:H7, or Listeria monocytogenes in suspension or on the surface of dip-inoculated cherry tomatoes. The new solution killed more than 99.99999 percent of Salmonella, and E. coli O157:H7 in solution and killed approximately 99.999 percent of L. monocytogenes in solution. The new solution killed more than 99.9 percent of all three pathogens on tomatoes.
