[en] Salmonella ; Monitoring
[en] Salmonella is among the most important meat pathogen worldwide. The prevalence and the level of contamination are essential for an efficient risk assessment program but all the different serovars do not have the same virulence potentiality.
Salmonella is a common pathogen found in pork and poultry.
Isolated strains belong to same serotypes and lysotypes isolated in human and animals.
An advanced analyze of results is needed in order to precise the sources of human salmonellosis.
The rate and the level, and thus the risk, is very higher in poultry than in pork.
These results should be used to take preventive measures in order to lower the contamination rate of Salmonella.
These results should be compared with those of others European countries.
