Abstract Enterocins A and B and sakacin K at 200 and 2,000 activity units (AU)/cm2, nisin at 200 AU/cm2, 1.8\% potassium lactate, and a combination of 200 AU/cm2 of nisin and 1.8\% lactate were incorporated into interleavers, and their effectiveness against Listeria monocytogenes spiked in sliced, cooked ham was evaluated. Antimicrobial-packaged cooked ham was then subjected to high-pressure processing (HPP) at 400 MPa. In nonpressurized samples, nisin plus lactate-containing interleavers were the most effective, inhibiting L. monocytogenes growth for 30 days at 6 degrees C, with counts that were 1.9 log CFU/g lower than in the control after 3 months. In the other antimicrobial-containing interleavers, L. monocytogenes did not exhibit a lag phase and progressively grew to levels of about 8 log CFU/g. HPP of actively packaged ham slices reduced Listeria populations about 4 log CFU/g in all batches containing bacteriocins (i.e., nisin, sakacin, and enterocins). At the end of storage, L. monocytogenes levels in the bacteriocin-containing batches were the lowest, with counts below 1.51 log CFU/g. In contrast, HPP moderately reduced L. monocytogenes counts in the control and lactate batches, with populations gradually increasing to about 6.5 log CFU/g at the end of storage.
