This project was undertaken as part of a commercial evaluation of two probiotic strains for subsequent use in the European market. Probiotic bacteria are thought to act as competitive exclusion agents against food home pathogens by several mechanisms. The aim of the study was to characterise the probiotic strains Lactobacillus salivarius 59 and Enterococcus faecium PXN-33, determine the safety of the probiotic strains and to evaluate the strains ability to competitively exclude Salmonella Enteritidis.
