Research – Microbial Properties of Raw Milk throughout the Year and Their Relationships to Quality Parameters

MDPI

Raw milk microbiota is complex and influenced by many factors that facilitate the introduction of undesirable microorganisms. Milk microbiota is closely related to the safety and quality of dairy products, and it is therefore critical to characterize the variation in the microbial composition of raw milk. In this cross-sectional study, the variation in raw milk microbiota throughout the year (n = 142) from three farms in China was analyzed using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing, including α and β diversity, microbial composition, and the relationship between microbiota and milk quality parameters. This aimed to characterize the contamination risk of raw milk throughout the year and the changes in quality parameters caused by contamination. Collection month had a significant effect on microbial composition; microbial diversity was higher in raw milk collected in May and June, while milk collected in October and December had the lowest microbial diversity. Microbiota composition differed significantly between milk collected in January–June, July–August, and September–December (p < 0.05). Bacterial communities represented in raw milk at the phylum level mainly included Proteobacteria, Firmicutes and Bacteroidota; PseudomonasAcinetobacterStreptococcus and Lactobacillus were the most common genera. Redundancy analysis (RDA) found strong correlations between microbial distribution and titratable acidity (TA), fat, and protein. Many genera were significantly correlated with TA, for example Acinetobacter (R = 0.426), Enhydrobacter (R = 0.309), Chryseobacterium (R = 0.352), Lactobacillus (R = −0.326), norank_o__DTU014 (R = −0.697), norank_f__SC-I-84 (R = −0.678), and Subgroup_10 (R = −0.721). Additionally, norank_f__ Muribaculaceae was moderately negatively correlated with fat (R = −0.476) and protein (R = −0.513). These findings provide new information on the ecology of raw milk microbiota at the farm level and contribute to the understanding of the variation in raw milk microbiota in China. View Full-Text

New Zealand – Nationwide recall of Pams frozen berries as Hepatitis A infections rise to 12, several hospitalised

Stuff NZ

Another nine cases of hepatitis A have been detected with links to frozen berries, prompting a recall of half a dozen products from the Pams brand.

Pams – a New Zealand division of supermarket giant Foodstuffs – is recalling various frozen berry products as a precautionover a possible link to recent cases of the contagious virus.

Of the 12 cases found so far, seven have been hospitalised, including young, fit teenagers – not typically deemed at high risk from the illness, New Zealand Food Safety deputy director-general Vincent Arbuckle said.

The investigation into the source continues. Until, and unless, a definitive source is identified, the advice to heat-treat remains in place for all frozen berry products – regardless of brand, officials warned.

Purpose

The FDA is advising consumers not to eat and to dispose of the recalled Oyster Kings Inc. oysters from Canada due to possible Salmonella contamination. These oysters were sold in Ontario and Quebec and may have been distributed in other provinces, territories, and in the U.S. No illnesses are known to be linked to the recalled products as of 9/27/2022.

Consumers of these products who are experiencing symptoms of salmonellosis should contact their healthcare provider, who should report their symptoms to their local Health Department.

Symptoms of salmonellosis

Salmonella species are bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal illness and fever. Most people infected with Salmonella begin to develop symptoms 12 to 72 hours after infection. Symptoms usually last four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

Most people with salmonellosis develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. More severe cases may include a high fever, aches, headaches, lethargy, a rash, blood in the urine or stool, and in some cases may become fatal.

Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe salmonellosis infections.

Summary of Problem and Scope

On 9/27/2022, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) notified the FDA of Oyster Kings Inc.’s oyster recall, that product had been distributed in the U.S., and that the U.S. distribution list is pending.

Consumer advice

New Zealand Food Safety’s advice to consumers is to:

  • Briefly boil frozen berries before eating them, or if you have a thermometer at home, ensure cooking temperatures exceed 85 degrees Celsius for 1 minute. Heated berries can be safely refrozen for later use.
  • If you microwave berries, you should stir half-way through the cooking process to make sure they are cooked through. Microwave’s settings will vary, the important thing is to ensure the berries reach boiling.
  • Wash your hands before eating and preparing food.

Until and unless a definitive source is identified, this advice applies to all frozen berry products.

There have been reports of possible associated illness in New Zealand. If you have consumed any of these products and have any concerns about your health, seek medical advice.

Alternatively, customers can return the products to their retailer for a full refund.

Research – Energy conservation can cause growth of Legionella in hot water systems

SSI

CDC legionella

Due to the current energy crisis, the authorities have various proposals for, and requirements for, saving on energy. Among other things, you can lower the temperature in hot water systems, and you can use less hot water by e.g. taking shorter baths, washing your hands in cold water and installing water-limiting measures, e.g. energy-saving showers.

However, both parts can contribute to increased growth of Legionella pneumophila in the water systems with a risk of infection and disease. It is therefore important that Danes think carefully before saving on energy.

Hot water systems can cause severe pneumonia

Most of our hot water systems contain Legionella pneumophila . The bacterium can cause a serious pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. Infection occurs by inhaling atomized water that is contaminated with the bacteria, e.g. while showering.

“The disease particularly affects elderly and debilitated people and causes up to 300 hospitalizations per year, but the bacterium is presumably the cause of far more mild cases of the disease, also in younger people. Since the bacteria are common in our hot water systems, it is important to limit their growth. This happens at home primarily by ensuring that cold water is no more than 20 °C and that hot water is at least 50 °C, as the bacteria cannot grow at these temperatures and begin to die at 50 °C,” says Søren Anker Uldum , who is head of department at the Statens Serum Institut.

Rinse through with very hot water

It is therefore important to continue to maintain at least 50 °C throughout the hot water system. The temperature must be reached at all tapping points after no more than 30 seconds. rinse and in the return water (before hot water tank or heat exchanger). In most cases, this can be achieved by heating the hot water to 55 °C in the hot water tank.

With reduced consumption of hot water, the water has longer residence times in the pipes and can have temperatures in the bacteria’s growth area for a longer period of time, so there must be a certain consumption of hot water.

Taps, such as faucets and showers that are rarely used, should be flushed with hot water at a minimum of 50 °C for a few minutes at least once a week.

When showering (which may well be short), it is also a good idea that at least once a week you first set the mixer to the maximum temperature and let the water run (to the drain) until it is as hot as it can be before setting it to bath water temperature (approx. 36 °C).

This advice applies especially if there are vulnerable people in the household or institution, such as the elderly or people with chronic illness or a weakened immune system.
