Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Salmonella in different points of the chain (transport, lairage, slaughterline and quartering). From eight consecutive assays a total of 134 Salmonella isolates out of 1180 different samples (11.3%) were recovered. The highest percentage of isolates were detected at the point of pre-scalding (30/80, 37.5%), caecal contents (18/80, 22.5%), trucks (13/60, 21.6%), tonsils (15/80, 18.7%), ileocaecal lymph nodes (13/80, 16.2%) and lairage (9/80, 11.2%).
