A review of current methods using bacteriophages in live animals, food and animal products intended for human consumption

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bacteriophages are utilised in the food industry as biocontrol agents to reduce the load of bacteria, and thus reduce potential for human infection. This review focuses on current methods using bacteriophages within the food chain. Limitations of research will be discussed, and the potential for future food-based bacteriophage research.
