Salmonella Contamination Risk Points in Broiler Carcasses during Slaughter Line Processing

Abstract: Salmonella is one of the foodborne pathogens most commonly associated with poultry products. The aim of this work was to identify and analyze key sampling points creating risk of Salmonella contamination in a chicken processing plant in Costa Rica and perform a salmonellosis risk analysis. Accordingly, the following examinations were performed: (i) qualitative testing (presence or absence of Salmonella), (ii) quantitative testing (Salmonella CFU counts), and (iii) salmonellosis risk analysis, assuming consumpt… Show more

“…in carcasses due to cross contamination throughout the various stages ofprocessing at wet markets. Rivera-Perez et al [ 49 ] also investigated the risk points during broiler carcass processing and reported that Salmonella contamination increased from 10% to 40% during evisceration and subsequent spray washing.…”

“…Salmonella spp. prevalence were reported relatively lower at different sampling points of the poultry slaughterhouse such as carcass 7.52%, IOBW 8.52% by Hue et al (), carcass 10%, IOBW 10% by Rivera‐Perez, Barquero‐Calvo, and Zamora‐Sanabria (), and 13% carcass after chilling by Mikolajczyk and Radkowski () whereas reported higher in other studies such as 100% in carcass by Abu‐Ruwaida et al (), 80% in carcass by Geornaras et al (), and 57.14% carcass after chilling by Clouser et al (). Sarlin et al () reported different prevalence levels on each of four different days at the same plant and concluded that the carcasses of different flocks slaughtered on the same day may have different prevalence levels but the first flock slaughtered on the same day cross‐contaminate the later flocks.…”

“…Previous studies have shown that transport cages can potentially act as a source of broiler exposure to Salmonella as they are transported into the food processing plants [21]. The prevalence in the carcasses is much higher to that in similar studies conducted in Colombia [22], Costa Rica [23], Canada [24], and the European Union [1]. Although, according to Ramirez-Hernandez et al [22], variability among facilities and regions is significant even in countries with high Salmonella prevalence.…”

“…Carcasses after initial washing presented the highest contamination, followed by carcasses before scalding and carcasses after evisceration. Previous studies suggest that the processes of evisceration and spray washing represent a risk of Salmonella cross-contamination or recontamination in broilers during slaughtering processing [23].…”
