The effectiveness of Triclosan-Incorporated plastic against bacteria on beef surfaces

A Stomacher® 400 was used as part of the study to test the effectiveness of Triclosan-Incorporated plastic against bacteria on beef surfaces. The Stomacher® was used to blend sponge samples for 2 minutes. The study demonstrates that while antimicrobial activity is detected against bacterial cultures in antimicrobial plate assays, plastic containing 1500 ppm of triclosan does not effectively reduce bacterial populations on refrigerated, vacuum-packed meat surfaces.
