International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

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

The aim of the project (Käsbohrer and Blaha, 1997) was to determine the reasons for the steady increase of Salmonella findings in the poultry meat produced at a slaughterhouse in Northern Germany, and, concluding from the results to implement pre-harvest food safety measures (Blaha, 1997) to reduce the introduction of Salmonella into the production line from the broiler flocks supplying the slaughterhouse.
