The length of the lag phase (LP) of toxigenesis in commercially cooked turkey meat stored under vacuum was determined as affected by 0, 1.2, 2 and 3% sodium lactate (L), 0, 1 and 2% NaCl (S), spore (pool of nonproteolytic B and E strains: B2, B17, B197, B706, E211, E250, E KA-2 and E Beluga) inoculum (I) of 10(-2) to 10(4), storage temperature (T) of 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 30 degrees C and their interactions. The time from inoculation to the detection of first toxic sample was defined as LP. Using regression analysis the following model predictive of LP of C. botulinum toxigenesis in the cooked turkey breast was derived: Log(1/LP) = -2.2877 -0.1235(S) -0.2174(L) +0.4391(square root of T) +0.0204(square root of T) (I). The model explained 94.5% of the variation in results, in which square root of T was the most influential factor (65%), followed by L (21.2%), interaction of I and square root of T (4.9%) and S (3.4%). The model predicted LPs longer than those observed in 28.3% of the comparisons, but only in 1% of the comparisons when the lower limit of the 90% confidence interval of LP was used. Similar trends on the effect of L on C. botulinum were observed in an inoculated chicken meat study. This study demonstrated quantitatively that increasing L and S concentrations and lowering of T had a beneficial effect on delaying toxigenesis.
