Abstract

A total of 177(11.9 %) Salmonella was isolated from 1,483 slaughtered pig samples (784 lymph nodes and 699 caecal contents) in Korea. One hundred forty (17.9 %) and 37 (5.3 %) Salmonella were isolated from lymph nodes and caecal contents, respectively. The major serotypes were as follows; S. Typhimurium (28.2 %), S. Derby (17.5 %), S. Schwarzengrund (15.3 %) and S. Mbandaka (11.9 %). None of the 50 S. Typhimurium isolates were detected the ampicillin or chloramphenicol resistance genes in multipex PCR.
