The existing knowledge on the effects of modified atmosphere (MA) packaging on foodborne pathogens is critically reviewed and areas for further research are suggested. Detailed attention is given to the effects of MA's on 4 specific areas of pathogens: Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Enterococci, and Clostridia. Data are presented on the use of air, vacuum, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and mixtures of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and oxygen at different temperatures for retarding pathogen growth, pathogen toxin development, and spoilage in ground and cooked beef and fish fillets.(wz).
