Abstract: Listeria monocytogenes can grow at low temperatures such as refrigeration. Accordingly, L. monocytogene is one of the major food poisoning pathogens in chilled food. This study was aimed to compare three primary models (the modified Gompertz, Logistic, and Baranyi model) and develop predictive models for the growth of L. monocytogenes in sausage, which is the most popular processed meat product, as a function of storage temperature (25, 30 and 35 °C). The growth data obtained at different temperatures were fit…
