Abstract

Pig is considered to be the main animal reservoir of human pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica strains which is frequently isolated from tonsils, but can also be found in the feces and onto carcasses. In France, while the main pathogenic biotypes are known for humans, few data are available regarding their prevalence in the pork chain production, and generally focus on tonsils contamination.

Pig fecal and tonsil contamination of Yersinia enterocolita in one French slaughterhouse

Maastricht, Netherlands

Pig is considered to be the main animal reservoir of human pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica strains which is frequently isolated from tonsils, but can also be found in the feces and onto carcasses. In France, while the main pathogenic biotypes are known for humans, few data are available regarding their prevalence in the pork chain production, and generally focus on tonsils contamination.
