monocytogenes and the effect of LP system –whey protein isolate (WPI) films and/or coating on smoked salmon. The WPI coatings incorporating LP system prevented the growth of L. monocytogenes in smoked salmon at 4 and 10°C for 35 and 14 day, respectively. According to Samelis et al. (2005), pork bologna slices dipped in a nisin solution (5,000 IU/mL) suppressed L. monocytogenes by 1 to 1.5 log cfu/cm2 at day 0, but L. monocytogenes populations increased by 10 day after dipping. Grower et al.
