USPOULTRY Funds Research on Salmonella Control


Chick-NewsIn a May 12th press release, USPOULTRY announced a grant of $119,000 to the University of Illinois to review control of Salmonella in raw poultry. The action is prompted by concerns that FSIS will introduce new regulatory measures including intervention at the live bird level to reduce contamination with bacterial pathogens.



A range of modalities will be considered with input from the U.S. poultry meat industry through a representative Advisory Council. Result of investigations will be applicable to control of Salmonella in egg-production flocks despite the reality that SE is now controlled in commercial farms by a combination of biosecurity, vaccination and suppy-chain refrigeration.


Research was made possible by donations to the USPOULTRY Foundation including a gift from Cooper Farms.
