Occurrence of Salmonella spp. and shigatoxin-producing escherichia coli (STEC) in horse faeces and horse meat products



Occurrence of Salmonella spp. and shigatoxin-producing escherichia coli (STEC) in horse faeces and horse meat products



Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 118(7-8): 321-325



In order to assess the relevance of the horse as a possible reservoir of Salmonella and shigatoxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), 400 samples of horse faeces and 100 samples of horse meat products were examined by PCR-screening methods. Salmonella enterica was not present in any of the samples. One faecal sample and one horse meat product were STEC-positive. The STEC-strain isolated from the faeces belonged to the serotype O113:H21 and had the stx 2c and enterohaemolysin genes.
