The post-processing contamination is one of the major causes of foodborne illness and the associated food product recalls; a major public health issue and an economic burden for the food industry . Therefore, post-processing antimicrobial interventions are gaining significance in order to control the growth of bacteria that contaminate the food product after the primary lethal treatment. Packaging of foods is one of the final steps in food processing before storage and consumption and therefore is a critical step for incorporating antimicrobial mechanisms especially to control the post-processing contamination.
