Fresh salad produce such as lettuce and spinach are an important part of a healthy diet, but are increasingly becoming associated with infection from foodborne pathogens such as Salmonella enterica. This review examines the incidence and origins of Salmonella fresh salad leaf colonization, models the behaviour of the pathogen when within a bagged salad and considers the various infection risk reduction strategies relevant to salad growers, distributors and consumers which can be employed to improve the microbiological safety of fresh salad leaves
Protective Properties of Probiotics on Commercial Broilers Experimentally Infected With Salmonella Enteritidis
Performance and productivity in the poultry industry lately is predicated on the use of antimicrobials, which has led to various negative impacts; among which include the emergence of a variety of pathogens and bacterial resistance including salmonella sp.
Salmonella-associated diarrhea is a common cause of community-acquired gastroenteritis. Some species of salmonella are associated with invasive diseases like meningitis, endocarditis and septicemia.
Infection with Salmonella spp can result in a variety of presentations such as enteric fever, septicemia, gastroenteritis, and septic arthritis. The common organisms seen in septic arthritis are Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococci which accounts for about 67% and 20% respectively. Salmonella spp however is less commonly seen in septic arthritis and it is usually associated with immunosuppression conditions and underlying chronic debilitating diseases such as malignancy, hemoglobinopathy, diabetes mellitus, and HIV.
Beta (1-3)(1-6)-D-glucan with strong effects on immune status in chicken: potential importance for efficiency of commercial farming
In face of the challenge of the emergent new diseases and the current efforts of the governments to ban growth-promoting antibiotics and to improve conditions and overall health of the farmed animals, new opportunities are created for natural, highly effective, cost affordable immunomodulators.
Acute Type C Botulism with Fatal Consequences in a Holstein Breeding Establishment in Northern Italy
BOTULISM is a neuro-paralytic intoxication illness caused by the ingestion of neurotoxins of Clostridium botulinum with contaminated water or food. The Gram-positive spore-producing bacterium Cl. botulinum is found worldwide and can survive in spore form for up to 30 years in numerous substrates in the environment. Cl. botulinum is classified into 7 or 8 different types (A, B, C (C1, C2), D, E, F, G) depending on the antigen properties of the botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT) produced, with intoxication mostly appearing in cattle following the ingestion of neurotoxins of type C and D and, less frequently, of type B.
Salmonella is a causative agent for a wide variety of pathological diseases in humans, cattle, poultry and other farm animals and hence Salmonella infections are a major cause of concern to humans, veterinary animals and to food industry.
