Abstract

Salmonella causes around 30 000 cases of human illness per year in The Netherlands, of which an estimated 25% is caused by pork. Salmonella carrying pigs and resident flora on slaughter equipment are relevant sources of carcass contamination. Although recognized, these sources from which and the routes through which Salmonella is transmitted to the pig carcasses during slaughter are not well understood in a quantitative way.

A practical framework for tracing sources of Salmonella in a pig slaughter plant

Maastricht, Netherlands

Salmonella causes around 30 000 cases of human illness per year in The Netherlands, of which an estimated 25% is caused by pork. Salmonella carrying pigs and resident flora on slaughter equipment are relevant sources of carcass contamination. Although recognized, these sources from which and the routes through which Salmonella is transmitted to the pig carcasses during slaughter are not well understood in a quantitative way.
