Abstract

Campylobacter are one of the most frequent causes of bacterial enteritis in industrialized countries and are widespread in food animals. Pigs are known to be largely contaminated in farms, but few data exist about the status of the pork food chain. The purpose of this study was to quantify the Campylobacter contamination of the French pork food chain: prevalence, contamination level, bactenal species in primary production (piglets and fattening pigs when slaughtered), and in first and second transformation process (from carcasses before chilling to deboned meat cuts).
