Epidemiology of Salmonellosis in Australia: surveillance of serovars and phage types from human and food animal sources
Is Version Of
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.
Data are presented on Salmonella in food animals in Australia, including pigs, cattle, sheep, broiler chickens and raw meats. These are compared with the most common types found in the human population. Questions are discussed regarding the importance of food animals versus other vehicles as sources of Salmonella in human infection.
