The thin agar layer (TAL) method was experimentally tested to determine its ability to recover Escherichia coli O157:H7 injured by sodium chloride (NaCl). Cells grown in Brain Heart Infusion broth with 0%, 5%, or 7.5% (w/v) NaCl were spread and spiral plated onto Tryptic Soy agar (TSA), MacConkey Sorbitol agar (MSA), and TSA/MSA TAL combinations. Generally, TSA recovered more injured cells than TAL (p < or =0.05), and TAL recovered more cells than MSA (p < or =0.05). Preparation mode (two vs. three layers) and age (0, 1, or 7 days) of TAL had negligible effect on resuscitation of injured cells (p > 0.05). TAL, which is conventionally used to recover heat, cold, and acid-injured foodborne pathogens, may be used to recover NaCl-injured E. coli O157:H7.
