Abstract

The main objective of the nation-wide salmonella control program is to reduce the risk of human exposure of Salmonella enterica contaminated pork. The philosophy of the program is that a reduction in the salmonella occurrence in all links of the chain from stable to table is necessary for the reduction of the contamination of pork and thereby a decreased health risk for humans. Not only is it important to monitor the contamination of pork with Salmonella enterica but also to monitor the salmonella occurrence in the swine herds.
