dc.description.abstract <p>The prevalence of Salmonella in fresh pork cuttings and the distribution of suppliers of these products to retailers in Denmark were investigated in 2002 and again in 2006. Samples were taken at retail level and the supplying slaughterhouses and cutting plants were identified. In 2002, a total of 1,025 and 3,473 samples were taken from butcher's shops and supermarkets, respectively. The corresponding numbers in 2006 were 259 from butchers' shops and 628 from supermarkets. All samples were tested qualitatively for Salmonella. For the positive samples the concentration was detennined using a semi-quantitative method. In 2002, 1.2% samples were Salmonella positive. Samples taken from butcher's shops accounted for 35% of the positive samples corresponding to a prevalence of 1.8% of Salmonella in fresh pork cuttings from this type of retailer. The corresponding prevalence for samples taken from supermarkets was 1.0%. In 2006, the prevalence in pork cuttings had increased to 4.2% and for meat bought in butchers' shops and supermarkets the prevalence was 8.1% and 2.6%, respectively. Hence, increases around 3- to 5-fold were found. In the same time period there have been no comparable increases in the Salmonella prevalence in the Danish slaughterhouses. Possible explanations for this will be discussed.</p>
