Abstract

Salmonella is the second most commonly reported zoonotic gastrointestinal pathogen in the European Union. Although the majority of foodborne outbreaks have been linked to the consumption of eggs and egg products (44.0%), a substantial proportion originate from pork and pork products (9.3%). Biosecurity measures correctly implemented on farm are important to reducing Salmonella carriage in live pigs and consequently the number of Salmonella contaminated carcasses entering the food chain.
