3M has announced that its Tecra Salmonella VIA Test method has been validated with the scope of “In Foods” by the AOAC International Official Methods of Analysis for more than 15 years, which included the detection of Salmonella in peanut butter.
3M continues to respond to the recall of thousands of peanut-derived products by reassuring their customers and the food industry that the 3M Tecra Salmonella VIA Test meets the rigorous standards required to receive an AOAC Official Method of Analysis approval.
“With the recent events involving peanut contamination, the industry is being challenged to reexamine their testing protocols. The 3M Tecra Salmonella VIA Test has long been a recognized and trusted method for detecting Salmonella. Our customers are committed to using 3M Tecra VIA as part of their comprehensive approach to deliver safe, quality food products to consumers. We are proud to continually partner with the food industry worldwide and are committed to respond with innovative solutions,” said Robert
E. Koeritzer, past president of AOAC International and senior technical manager for 3M.
The 3M Tecra Salmonella VIA Test is designed to provide rapid, reliable and repeatable results regardless of the number of samples to be processed. The easy-to-use method is simple to incorporate into current workflows and detects Salmonella in raw materials, finished product or environmental surfaces.
