There is no current FDA limit as most species of lactobacillus are generally recognized as safe (GRAS)

See current database:

Hi salad man,

 

LACTOBACILLI H. FERMENTATIVE 7,200,000 CFU/g CMMEF, APHA CHP 19

 

What does the "H." mean ?

 

What is the (constant?) storage temperature ?


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Hi Salad Man,

 

In addition to the answers above, you need to justify whether it's normal, the Lactobacilli are in the salad. With other words, is there an ingredient in the salad which justifies their presence or was there cross-contamination?

 

Remark: In the results for the 12 days, the Total Plate Count doesn't appear. Yes, the Lactobacillus count is in the Total plate count. So, you can subtract them from the total to see if it complies to your specification. (Just look to what the "H" stands for, before you do that).

 

If the presence of the Lactobacilli is justified, next time you can do a Total plate count with exception of Lactobacilli and you need to adapt the microbiological specification of your product.

 

When the presence isn't justified, you need to sort out where the contamination came from.

 

Hope this helps you further.

 

Kind regards,

 

Gerard Heerkens
