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

Multi-resistant Salmonella typhimurium DTI04 (DT104) was first isolated from Danish livestock in 1996. DTI 04 is now known as an important and emerging pathogen in many countries. In Denmark, multi-resistant Salmonella typhimurium DT 104 is officially declared an unwanted bacteria in any food. Consequently, when DT 104 is detected in pork at a Danish slaugtherhouse, all carcasses from the day of slaugther in question must be heat treated. In order to find DT I 04 infected swine herds, a mandatory tracing back procedure is performed by strategical use of serology and culture.
