Perasan MP-2 is an FDA-approved antimicrobial specifically formulated for use in ice and water that directly contacts meat, poultry, and seafood, as well as further processed fruits and vegetables. Perasan MP-2 contains 15% peracetic acid, 6% hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid. With its low level of hydrogen peroxide, Perasan MP-2 does not cause the discoloration problems in poultry seen with other formulations. It is also much less prone to browning delicate lettuce and other fragile produce. Perasan MP-2 is approved as an antimicrobial in water and ice used to cool ready-to-eat meat and poultry products. It exhibits high level efficacy against Listeria, E. coli, and Salmonella, as well as many other pathogenic and spoilage-associated microorganisms.
