Abstract : Contaminated water used in the preparation of canned foods is a common cause of spoilage. Water must be tested for general contamination and colititer, and must be filtered to detect anaerobic spores. Data are presented indicating the effectiveness of chlorination. Cooling water used in autoclaves must be chlorinated, as well as water used in processing, since vacuum built up in the jars after sterilization can lead to seepage of water through the seal. These measures virtually eliminated spoilage in a green pea cannery. (Author)
