<div><p>Probiotic <em>Lactobacillus</em> can be used to reduce the colonization of pathogenic bacteria in food animals, and therefore reduce the risk of foodborne illness to consumers. As a model system, we examined the mechanism of protection conferred by <em>Lactobacillus</em> species to inhibit <em>C. jejuni</em> growth <em>in vitro</em> and reduce colonization in broiler chickens. Possible mechanisms for the reduction of pathogens by lactobacilli include: 1) stimulation of adaptive immunity; 2) alteration of the cecal microbiome; and, 3) production of inhibitory metabolites, such as organic acids. The <em>Lactobacillus</em> species produced lactic acid at co...
