eWater: A solution to the listeria outbreak

A recent outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes (listeria), connected to rockmelon originating from a farm in NSW, has shown that there is a need for more effective treatment of bacteria on fruit and vegetables.

Listeriosis is of grave concern to the community and can be fatal, particularly to the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

Electrolysed water has been demonstrated to be not only an effective sanitiser, particularly in regards to listeria, but its efficacy over other commercial sanitisers.

As listeria can live on the skin of the rockmelon, contamination can occur at any point from preparation to sale, so it is imperative that a solution be implementable from the beginning of the production cycle to the end.

And despite its ability to kill bacteria, electrolysed water is completely harmless to people and the environment.

The electrolysis units and reticulated systems sold eWater Systems can be installed at many of the locations fruit and vegetables can be shipped or sold, such as food production facilities and supermarkets.

eWater Systems has published a special report on the matter.
