Efficacy evaluation of a disinfectant in experimental Salmonella infection
Breno C. B. Beirão et al.
While antibiotics such as polypeptides, fluoroquinolones and sulfonamides have been typically used to treat salmonellosis (Jacob, 2015), the rising need to reduce or eliminate the use of antibiotics in production systems means that disease prevention is gaining increasing priority.
Prevalence, risks and antibiotic resistance of Salmonella in poultry production chain
N. Mouttotou et al.
Salmonella spp. are bacteria that cause salmonellosis, a common form of foodborne illness with major impact on human health and huge financial losses in poultry industry. The incidence of notified cases of salmonellosis has declined from a peak of 24 per 100,000 in 2009 to 20.4 reported cases per 100,000 population in 2013, with S. enteritidis and S. typhimurium being the most commonly reported serovar in EU.
National outbreak of multi-drug resistant Salmonella Heidelberg infections linked to a single poultry company
L. Gieraltowski et al.
This large outbreak of foodborne salmonellosis demonstrated the complexity of investigating outbreaks linked to poultry products. The outbreak also highlighted the importance of efforts to strengthen food safety policies related to Salmonella in chicken parts and has implications for future changes within the poultry industry.
