A cocktail of Listeria monocytogenes strains was inoculated into cooked chicken (∼2.2 × 10(3) CFU g(-1)) which was then pressure-treated (600 MPa/2 min/20 °C) and stored for up to 105 days at 8 °C. In addition, sodium lactate (2% w/w) or a pressure-resistant Weissella viridescens strain, known to have antilisterial activity, were added to the meat prior to inoculation with the pathogen and pressure treatment, to investigate the effect on Listeria survival. Pressure treatment alone was not sufficient to eliminate all of the Listeria. Numbers of survivors were initially below the level of detection (50 CFU g(-1)) but increased during storage to reach >10(8) CFU g(-1) by day 21. The presence of W. viridescens significantly extended the lag phase of any Listeria that survived the initial pressure treatment by ∼35 days, but numbers then increased to reach ∼10(7) CFU g(-1) by day 105. The addition of 2% sodium lactate in combination with pressure treatment was most effective at inhibiting the growth of L. monocytogenes and numbers remained below the limit of detection throughout the 105 day storage. The addition of antimicrobial agents, in combination with pressure, could be used to give additional food safety assurance without increasing pressure hold time.
