Scientists at Purdue University have developed a nanoparticle capable of keeping food safe from Listeria contamination for significantly longer than has previously been possible.

The nanoparticle works by slowly releasing nisin, an antimicrobial agent that kills Listeria, into food.  Nisin is already commonly used to prevent the growth of Listeria.  However, it remains
