International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

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.
