PRACTICAL APPLICATION: While refrigerated acidified vegetable products are exempt from the acidified foods regulations, we have shown that the vegetative microbial pathogens E. coli O157:H7 can survive for up to 1 mo in these products, given current commercial production practices. To improve the safety of refrigerated pickle products, a brine formulation with reduced acetic acid, but containing fumaric acid, was developed to assure a 5-log reduction in cell numbers of E. coli O157:H7 without a heat process. The formulation can be used to assure the safety of refrigerated pickled vegetables without altering sensory characteristics.
