Listeria monocytogenes is a recognized foodborne pathogenic bacterium that causes many diseases, from mild gastroenteritis to severe blood and central nervous system infections, as well as abortion in pregnant women. Generally, processed ready-to-eat and cold-stored fresh products are considered high-risk foods for L. monocytogenes infections that cause listeriosis. The antibacterial activity of nine commercial detergent; Glo, Joy, Sunplus, Sunlight, Good Maid and Kuat Harimau, Top, Breeze, Dynamo, were evaluated by determined the Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC). Joy showed the lowest MIC and MBC of both at 10% (v/v), whereas Good Maid had the highest MIC and MBC both at 50% (v/v). Therefore, the most effective detergent can be applied into food product surfaces and processing lines to avoid any contamination and induce outbreak of this bacterium in the future.
