Abstract

Two enhanced microbiological methods were evaluated for recovery of Salmonella species from samples collected at slaughter, with a focus on ileocecal lymph nodes. Samples from one hundred and sixty two animals (vaccinated = 79, non-vaccinated = 83) were collected along with 25 pooled environmental samples (pen, truck, lairage). Animal sample types included ileocecal lymph nodes, peritoneal sponges and shoulder sponges. Initially, swabs from all samples were used to directly inoculate hektoen enteric (HE) plates.

Two enhanced microbiological methods were evaluated for recovery of Salmonella species from samples collected at slaughter, with a focus on ileocecal lymph nodes. Samples from one hundred and sixty two animals (vaccinated = 79, non-vaccinated = 83) were collected along with 25 pooled environmental samples (pen, truck, lairage). Animal sample types included ileocecal lymph nodes, peritoneal sponges and shoulder sponges. Initially, swabs from all samples were used to directly inoculate hektoen enteric (HE) plates.
