International Journal of Food Microbiology Paper

The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of aerosolized hydrogen peroxide in inactivating bacteria and maintaining quality of grape tomatoes, baby spinach leaves and cantaloupes. Stem scars and smooth surfaces of tomatoes, spinach leaves, and cantaloupe rinds, inoculated with Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella Typhimurium and Listeria innocua, were treated for 45 s followed by additional 30 min dwell time with hydrogen peroxide (7.8%) aerosols activated by atmospheric cold plasma.
