Abstract : The literature pertinent to the use of packaging materials for radiation processed foods has been reviewed and tabulated. The conclusions drawn from these data have been applied to the probable package engineering requirements of five fishery and five fruit products under investigation by the AEC for shelf life extension by radiation-pasteurization. The needed research and field testing program is outlined. A bibliography of approximately 450 references and 18 tables of data are included.
