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

Monitoring systems are in place to categorize pig finishing herds, abattoirs and cutting plants for their level of Salmonella contamination. In order to improve their status, if necessary, the companies and their advisors need to implement an improvement plan. This can be based on a strengths and weaknesses analysis in relation to all factors that contribute to the Salmonella contamination level. To do this analysis in a uniform, structured and repeatable way, internet based checklists were developed.
