Application in Seafood Industry

Product Description Klorsafe is a two part system which is to be mixed together at the point of use. Klorsafe is an antimicrobial food additive approved by FDA [21cfr173.325 (d)] to be used for pathogen reduction on finfish & crustaceans.The reacted solution is to be used in processing facilities as an antimicrobial agent to reduce pathogenic bacteria due to cross-contamination during the harvesting, handling, heading, evisceration, butchering, storing, holding, packing, or packaging of finfish and crustaceans.
Function Promotes Shelf Life Enhancement

  • Application of Klorsafe to whole fish provides an effective surface disinfectant to reduce naturally occurring microbial populations on the skin of the fish
  • Controls microbial activity on finfish so product spoilage is minimized and shelf life is enhanced.
  Enhances Food Safety and Product Quality

  • Reduces pathogenic bacteria on finfish & crustaceans encountered during the harvesting, handling, heading, evisceration, butchering, filleting, storing, holding, packing, or packaging.
  • Reduces pathogen bacteria on finfish following filleting.
  • Substantially reduces contamination on raw finfish, minimizing product spoilage and helping to improve finished product quality and extend shelf-life.
  • Low reactivity with organics and soils helps assure consistent dosage for microbial control on finfish & crustaceans.
  • Applicable to all finfish and crustaceans
  • Reduced total bacterial count and numbers of L. monocytogenes on salmon fillets
  • Significantly reduces the numbers of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Spp. and/or Vibrio parahaemolyticus on finfish and crustaceans.
  • No adverse organoleptic effects.
  • No adverse effects on biological waste treatment systems.
