Safe Pork 2011Safepork IX has three key food safety topics. The first one is modernisation of meat inspection, as today’s meat inspection is a system that was developed to detect the old zoonotic diseases, like tuberculosis, but its value for zoonotic agents like Salmonella and Toxoplasma is highly questionable. Several initiatives have been taken in recent years, which will be presented during this conference.

A second important topic of today is antimicrobial resistance. Human medicine is looking at the use of antimicrobials in animals as one of the sources of antimicrobial resistance of pathogens in man and, consequently, also the pig industry needs to respond to this concern. Several studies will be presented showing not only the development and prevalence of resistant bacterial strains, especially MRSA, but also possibilities to reduce the use of antimicrobials in pig husbandry. We hope the conference will contribute to successful strategies to allow pig production with limited amounts of antibiotics.

Former Safepork conferences focused on epidemiology and control Salmonella. In this conference control of Salmonella and other bacterial pathogens, pre- and post harvest, still receives a lot of attention. The EU base line study showed that Salmonella is wide spread within Europe, with big differences between slaughterhouses. This large variation implies that improvement is possible if we implement the right tools.
