AbstractFood soil is the unwanted matter on food contact surfaces which may be visible or invisible. In slaughterhouses fats and proteins are the most common types of soil which is a source of bacterial contamination and further results in cross contamination of meat. Personnel involved in cleaning purpose should have a background knowledge regarding the nature of soil before selecting a detergent. Improper usage of these sanitizers and disinfectants leads to develop resistance among food borne pathogens, which may be innate, apparent or acquired. Due to the non-specificity of sanitizers, the development of resistance is mostly caused by innate factors (Russell, 1997) which are chromosomally controlled associated with organisms. The mechanisms include impermeable cellular barriers preventing penetration of the sanitizer, cellular efflux (mechanisms inside the cell pump compounds out), and lack of a biochemical target for antimicrobial attachment or microbial inactivation and inactivation of antimicrobials by microbial enzymes (Davidson et al., 2002 and Bower et al., 1999). In this regard, due to unsuccessful disinfection processes and emerging resistance, conventional control measures becoming ineffective, necessitating the development of new strategies (Valeriano et al., 2012). Growing negative consumer perception towards synthetic disinfectants led to the search of natural al[i]ternatives.
