Abstract The SOS response is a conserved inducible pathway in bacteria that is involved in DNA repair and restart of stalled replication forks. Activation of the SOS response can result in stress resistance and mutagenesis. In food processing facilities and during food preservation, bacteria are exposed to stresses and stimuli that potentially activate the SOS response, resulting in resistant or adapted bacteria. This review places the bacterial SOS response in a food safety perspective by providing an overview of the known triggers of the SOS response mechanism and its impact on the survival of spoilage and pathogenic bacteria.
