Relationship between incidence of salmonella contamination among pre scalded eviscerated and post chilled chickens in a poultry processing plant

Relationship between incidence of salmonella contamination among pre scalded eviscerated and post chilled chickens in a poultry processing plant

Journal of Food Protection 43(7): 538-542

The incidence of Salmonella contamination in 11 flocks of chickens was determined at 3 sites within a poultry processing plant: A, before scalding; B, after evisceration; C, after chilling. The average incidence of Salmonella contamination of flocks ranged from 1.2-74.4%, and flock to flock variability among sites was significant. Incidences of Salmonella ranged from 3-96% at site A; 0-69% at site B; and 0-96% at site C. Flocks with a high incidence of Salmonella contamination at site A were also frequently contaminated at sites B and C. By generating regression equations, it was possible to predict the incidence of Salmonella at 1 of these sites from the incidence at the other sites. The ability to define the interdependence between internal and external Salmonella contamination of chickens provides a basis for developing effective control measures for decreasing the incidence of Salmonella-contaminated retail chickens.
