The bactericidal activity of three bacteriocin-producing lactic acid bacteria alone and in combination with milk lactoperoxidase (LP) system activation against Listeria monocytogenes in refrigerated raw milk was studied. After 4 d at 4 degrees C, the population of L. monocytogenes in milk inoculated with bacteriocin-producing Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis ATCC 11454, L. lactis subsp. lactis ESI 515 or Enterococcus faecalis INIA 4 was reduced by 0.21-0.24 log units. Activation of the LP system did not enhance inhibition at this temperature. After 4 d at 8 degrees C, L. monocytogenes levels in the non-activated LP system milk inoculated with L. lactis subsp. lactis ATCC 11454, L. lactis subsp. lactis ESI 515 or Ent. faecalis INIA 4 were reduced by 1.87, 1.54 and 1.11 log units compared to control milk, whereas in the activated LP system milk, this reduction was 1.99, 2.10 and 1.06, respectively. The higher nisin production by L. lactis subsp. lactis ESI 515 in milk with activated LP system than in non-activated LP system milk was responsible for the more pronounced decrease of L. monocytogenes counts in the former.
