Assessment of the human risk associated with use of pork with potential presence of multi-resistant Salmonella Typhimurium DT104 for bacon production

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.
We examined whether pork with suspected content of Salmonella typhimurium DT104 (DT104) could be used for production of bacon without jeopardizing consumer safety. The results of the risk assessment showed, that if Salmonella is present in raw pork, it is usually low in numbers.
