Will a vinegar wash kill Listeria on salad greens?

sweet100s | Feb 11, 2013 04:45 PM

I have vinegar (yes, straight vinegar) in a spray bottle that I've been spraying over veggies before I prep them.

Would spraying vinegar on boxed salad greens remove any Listeria that remains?

I just read the Huffington Post article on
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02...

which led me to the
The Biggest Food Safety Disasters Of 2012 slideshow article underneath it.

Listeria seemed to be the most common.

re: the article
I felt terrible for that person vacationing in FL who caught vibriosis from a bad oyster. That sounds like one of the worst ways to die ever.
