Campylobacter sp in organs and meconium of day-old broiler chicks derived from naturally infected breeder hens

Abstract: Campylobacter sp is an important agent that causes foodborne infection, particularly in food of poultry origin. Therefore, the efficient control of the transmission routes in chicken farms is of outmost importance to prevent it from spreading. In chicken farms, the main transmission route of this microorganism is horizontal, as the vertical route continues to be the object of inconclusive researches. The objective of this study was to verify the presence of Campylobacter sp in breeder hens, meconium, and other… Show more

“…Acuff et al (2) reported that no Campylobacter could be found in turkey eggs, but only 20 eggs were tested, and then with insensitive sampling methods. Fonseca et al (33) sampled the meconium and a pooled sample of heart, spleen, and liver from 117 chicks. When Campylobacter was not isolated, they concluded that vertical transmission is a rare event.…”

“…It is frequently diagnosed in developed countries, and one of its major causal agents is Campylobacter jejuni (4,10,19). Brazilian aviculture has exhibited high growth rates over the last 3 decades; as such, Brazil has become the third largest producer of chicken meat worldwide and the leader in exports.…”

“…Campylobacter microorganisms are widely spread in boiler farms as reported by both wieliczko (1995A) and Jacobs-Reitsma et al (1994) and the chickens can be infected by Campylobacter microorganisms at 4-6 weeks of age. Therefore, the efficient control of the transmission routes in chicken farms is of outmost importance to prevent it from spreading (Fonseca et al, 2006).…”

“…The contamination of poultry meat usually occurs after slaughtering when the organisms spread from the intestinal contents of the affected birds to the carcasses during the process of evisceration (Simmons and Gibbs., 1979). In chicken farms, the main transmission route of this microorganism is horizontal, as the vertical route continues to be the object of inconclusive researches (Fonseca et al, 2006).…”
