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

This study was undertaken to achieve information on the presence of antibiotic resistance determinants in coagulase negative staphylococci (CNS) and enterococci (Ec) that are a significant component of the fermentation process of cured meat products. Vancomycin resistant Ec and CNS were isolated thorough the production process from raw pork meats to final products and, furthermore, many Ec strains were found to be positive in PCR experiments for jsrA and ace, virulence expression factors.
