Phage Preparation Effective Against Escherichia coli O157:H7
EcoShield™ is an all-natural, non-chemical antimicrobial preparation for controlling the foodborne bacterial pathogen Escherichia coli O157:H7. The active ingredients of EcoShield™ are naturally occurring lytic bacteriophages that selectively and specifically kill E. coli O157:H7. EcoShield™ is specifically designed for treating foods that are at high risk for E. coli O157:H7 contamination.
EcoShield™ is the choice for eliminating or significantly reducing contamination of food with E. coli O157:H7 because it:
