Phage Preparation Effective Against Shigella spp.

ShigaShield™ is an all-natural, non-chemical antimicrobial preparation for controlling the foodborne/waterborne bacterial pathogen Shigella. The active ingredients of ShigaShield™ are naturally occurring lytic bacteriophages that selectively and specifically kill Shigella, including strains belonging to the three major disease-causing species S. flexneri, S. sonnei and S. dysenteriae.

ShigaShield™ is specifically designed for treating foods that are at high risk for Shigella contamination including ready-to-eat meat and poultry, fish (including smoked fish), shellfish, fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, and dairy products including cheese. ShigaShield™ is the choice for eliminating or significantly reducing contamination of food with Shigella because it:

Is GRAS for direct application onto cooked beef, cooked chicken, smoked salmon, honeydew melon, lettuce, and yogurt (GRN No. 000672)
Requires no labeling ("clean label")
Does not contain preservatives
Is cost effective and cost competitive
Is effective under a wide range of food storage conditions (e.g., 2°C-42°C)
Is all natural and not genetically modified (non-GM)
Does not alter food flavor, aroma, or nutritional value
