If you are passing this string from javascript you can encode parameters and unencode from ActionScript.
Another option replace & by | for example and replace in AS

flashvars.strData = escape("cmdID53!cmd&Name53!cardType53!cmdType53,cmdID54!cmdName54!cardType54!");


var readableString:String = unescape(Application.application.params['strData']);
