Some kinds: Pasteurization rapidly heats foods (usually milk, dairy) to a hightemperature to kill disease causing bacteria. What happens afterwards? Pasteurized milk can still spoil, get contaminated by bacteria if not kept at appropriate temperature, handled correctly, served by dirty handlers, etc, .
