Biofilms help Salmonella survive hostile conditions, Virginia Tech researchers say

In addition to protecting Salmonella from heat-processing and sanitizers such as bleach, biofilms preserve the bacteria in extremely dry conditions, and again when the bacteria are subjected to normal digestive processes. The research may help shape regulations by highlighting the need for better sanitation and new strategies to reduce biofilm formation on equipment to decrease the likelihood of outbreaks.
