Hi all,

 

Just read an article about a recall of coriander powder that contained salmonella. This came as a surprise to me as I was always under the impression that bacteria needed moisture to multiply but in recent weeks that idea has been nibbled away at by reading various reports. My only guess would be that the coriander used was washed with unsanitary water or something like that before preparation? And with the Cadbury outbreak in 2007 (I was only 12 then so didn't really know anything about it), I'm guessing that's something to do with the milk in the product?

 

This may be showing a bit of a lack of knowledge but I figured if anyone can help me I'd be able to understand it all a bit better.

 

Regards,

 

Andy

Hi Andy,

 

Yes you are right, bacteria needed moisture to multiply.

if the coriander seeds washed with unsanitary water there is a possible, but to my knowledge they don't wash coriander seeds, may be harvested premature, so there is a moist in it therefore it leads to salmonella, or it definitely with the unsanitary storage or stored in infestation location or store product under leak spot or poor quality control for FIFO

 

hope its helpful info...

 

 

Thanks,

Abdul

Hi Andy,

 

Bacteria can survive at low Aw without multiplication.
