Abstract

Bacteriophage treatment significantly reduced the rapid dissemination of Salmonella typhimurium in tonsil and cecum, where the highest number of Salmonella was recovered in pigs experimentally infected with S. typhimurium. The rapid dissemination of Salmonella in market weight pigs prior to slaughter may pose a potential risk in contaminating pork products. Phage treatment should be considered as an intervention strategy to reduce the number of Salmonella in pigs.
