Cost-benefit analysis of measures to reduce Salmonella in Danish pork
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.
The Danish control program for Salmonella in pork was initiated in 1995, and since then the number of human cases of salmonellosis in Denmark has dropped significantly. The question is, how further reductions can be attained in a cost-effective way.
