The microbial contamination levels for food contact and environmental surfaces in meat processing plants and retail shops were assessed. Sixty-eight samples from meat processing plants and 44 from retail shops were collected. Samples were tested for total aerobic plate count (APC). Via monthly evaluation of samples from plants, the highest APC values were obtained in January as well as December and the second highest in April, May, and February (p<0.005). The highest APC values of samples from plants were obtained from boots, followed by aprons, cutting machines, and knives (p<0.001). Interestingly, the APC value of samples from shops in January was highest (p<0.001). The contamination of cotton gloves, knives, boots, and wristlets was relatively higher even in shops (p<0.001). In addition, there was a positive correlation between the APC and specimen (r=0.231). For monitoring, the microbial sampling should consider testing the food contact and environmental surfaces along with raw meats. © 2017, The Korean Society of Food Science and Technology and Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

This study was conducted to compare the physicochemical traits of dry-cured hams made from two different three-way crossbred pigs: Yorkshire×Landrace×Duroc (YLD) and Yorkshire×Berkshire×Duroc (YBD). Animals were slaughtered at a live weight of 110 to 120 kg and cooled at 0°C for 24 h in a chilling room, the ham portion of the carcasses were cut and processed by dry-curing for physico-chemical analyses. While the moisture and crude protein contents of dry-cured ham were higher in YLD than in YBD, crude fat and ash content were higher in YBD (p<0.05). The salt contents of ham from YBD were higher than those from YLD (p<0.05). YBD ham samples showed a higher L∗ and b∗ values than those from YLD, while YBD ham showed lower avalue (p<0.05). Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and volatile basic nitrogen (VBN) values of YLD hams were lower than those of YBD samples (p<0.05). Hardness, gumminess, chewiness, and shear force values of YBD ham were higher than those of YLD sample (p<0.05). Saltiness was significantly higher in YBD ham than in YLD samples (p<0.05). YLD ham displayed a superior quality than YBD. Considering the meat quality parameters of two-way crossbred ham, YLD hams could be more suitable for the production of dry-cured products.

This study was conducted to compare the meat qualities of loin (m. longissimus dorsi) and top round (m. semimembranosus) from Hanwoo and Holstein veal. Ten Hanwoo and Holstein calves were randomly selected from a local cattle farm and raised. They were slaughtered when they were 8 mon old and weighed. Weight and percentage in primal cuts and slaughter performance of Hanwoo and Holstein veal calves are obtained. Immediately after weighting, slices of loin and top round muscles were sampled. After vacuum packaging, the samples were subjected to proximate composition, physicochemical and microbiological analyses. Dressing weight and percentage were heavier and greater (p<0.05) in the Holstein than in the Hanwoo. Water contents of the top round muscle was higher in the Holstein than in the Hanwoo (p<0.05). Water-holding capacity, protein content and CIE L* (lightness) of both muscles were higher in the Holstein than in the Hanwoo veal, whereas fat content, pH, cooking loss, a* (redness), and b* (yellowness) were higher in the Hanwoo than in the Holstein veal (p<0.05). Thiobarbituric acid and volatile basic nitrogen values of both the muscles were lower in the Hanwoo than in the Holstein veal during the first 10 d of storage (p<0.05).

Purpose: This study was done to develop a reproductive health program to improve reproductive health of women immigrants. Methods: The participants in the study were 58 immigrant women who lived in Vietnam, China, Philippines, or Cambodia before marriage. They were assigned to the experiment group (n= 29) or the control group (n= 29). The reproductive health program for this study consisted of reproductive health education, health counseling, phone monitoring, and emotional support based on Cox (1982)'s Interaction Model of Client Health Behavior and was implemented for four weeks. Results: There were significant differences in reproductive health knowledge (t= 9.78, p<.001), reproductive health attitude (t= 6.59, p<.001), and reproductive health behavior (t= 5.11, p<.001) within and between groups after the reproductive health program. But there were no significant differences in clinical indicators between the two groups. Conclusion: The results of this study indicate the that reproductive health program for the women immigrants is effective in terms of reproductive health knowledge, reproductive health attitude and reproductive health behaviors. Therefore, nurses in public and private facilities, such as multicultural centers and public health centers in each community, should develop strategies to expand and provide reproductive health programs for women immigrants. © 2014 Korean Society of Nursing Science.

Aims and objectives: To develop an objective instrument to measure nurses' entry-level knowledge of and skills in evidence-based practice, and to evaluate the validity and reliability of the instrument. Background: To promote evidence-based practice in nursing, nurses should initially receive education about evidence-based practice knowledge and learn the skills, and this should be followed by measurement with an instrument that was developed to evaluate the extent to which they are prepared to use evidence-based practice knowledge and skills. Although some self-report instruments have been developed to measure evidence-based practice in nursing, an objective instrument to evaluate nurses' evidence-based practice knowledge and skills is not available at present. Design: A methodological study. Methods: This study was conducted in two stages: the instrument development and its psychometric evaluation, including its validity and reliability. An instrument, 'Knowledge and Skills of Evidence-based Nursing,' was developed. Content validity was assessed by five experts in evidence-based nursing, and the construct validity was evaluated by the known-groups method. Reliability was examined with internal consistency reliability and inter-rater reliability. Results: A content validity index >0·80 was achieved. For construct validity, there were statistically significant differences between the evidence-based practice and nonevidence-based practice groups in total scores and in the scores on each subscale of the Knowledge and Skills of Evidence-based Nursing. Cronbach's alpha was 0·96, and the inter-rater reliability was excellent. Conclusions: The Knowledge and Skills of Evidence-based Nursing is a valid and reliable instrument for objectively assessing nurses' evidence-based practice knowledge and skills; it is quick to complete and to score the answers. Relevance to clinical practice: Because the Knowledge and Skills of Evidence-based Nursing objectively assesses nurses' evidence-based practice knowledge and skills, it can be used to examine the effects of evidence-based practice education. Moreover, the Knowledge and Skills of Evidence-based Nursing may contribute to the promotion of evidence-based practice projects in clinical settings because it can measure the extent to which nurses are prepared to use their evidence-based practice knowledge and skills. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

This study investigates the effect of cooking, storage, and reheating conditions on the formation of cholesterol oxidation products (COPs) in pork loin. Samples of pork loin procured 24 h postmortem were initially processed and assessed for total fat and cholesterol content. The cooking methods evaluated were pan roasting, steaming, oven grilling, and microwaving. Cooked pork loin samples were stored at 4 and reheated after 3 and 6 d of storage using the original method of preparation or alternately, microwaving. Fat content increased significantly with cooking as a result of the loss in moisture but cholesterol content remained unchanged. Pan roasting and microwave cooking caused a significantly higher production of COPs, as with the process of reheating using microwave, pan roasting, and oven grilling methods. The major COPs found in pork loin were cholestanetriol, 20-hydroxycholesterol, and 25-hydroxycholesterol, whose concentrations varied according to the different cooking and reheating methods used. Moreover, the aerobic storage of cooked pork loin under a refrigerated condition also increased the formation of cholesterol oxides on reheating.

This study was performed to determine the quality characteristics of the loins and the butts from three different two-way crossbred pigs: Yorkshire×Landrace (YL), Yorkshire×Berkshire (YB), and Yorkshire×Chester White (YC). The pH of YB was higher than the others in loins, but lower in butts. The drip loss, cooking loss, and WHC of the YB loins were better than the others (P<0.05). YC loins had the lowest fat contents among crossbreds, while not different in butts. The shear force of YL was higher than YB or YC in both loins and butts (P<0.05). The CIE color and TBARS values of the two cuts, however, did not significantly differ by crossbred. YB and YC loins had higher content of linoleic acid (C18:2. n-6), PUFA, and n-6 than the YL. Stearic acid (C18:0) and arachidonic acid (C20:4. n-6) in YB loins were lower than the others (P<0.05). PUFA content of YC and YB butts was significantly higher than YL (P<0.05). Free amino acids such as alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, glycine, isoleucine, leucine, and valine in YC loins were lower than the others (P<0.05). YL loins had higher content of free glutamic acid than YB (P<0.05). YC loins had lower content of free aspartic acid than the others (P<0.05). YB butts had lower content of free alanine, histidine, and threonine than the others, while they had higher arginine (P<0.05). The meat quality parameters of the two-way crossbreds will provide basic information for pig improvement with increased meat quality. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
