Campylobacter in slaughtered turkeys: frequency and epidemiological markers



Campylobacter in slaughtered turkeys: frequency and epidemiological markers



Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 136(7): 541-546



Of 48 Campylobacter strains isolated from deep samples of heart, liver, muscle meat and skin of turkeys, 27 were identified as C. coli, 16 C. jejuni, 3 C. fetus, and 2 nalidixic acid-resistant strains. Enrichment medium gave the best results. The highest isolation rate was from hearts (42% of 79 positive), followed by liver (17.5% of 80), skin (4 of 50) and meat (one of 50).
