    Measures for the control of non-typhoidal Salmonella spp. in poultry meat

    In response to a request from the 52nd Session of the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene (CCFH), the FAO/WHO Joint Expert Meetings on Microbiological Risk Assessment (JEMRA) convened this meeting, to collate and assess the most recent scientific information relating to the control of non-typhoidal (NT)-Salmonella spp. in chicken meat. The assessment included a review of the Codex Guidelines for the Control of Campylobacter and Salmonella in Chicken Meat (CXG 78-2011). The Campylobacter will be reviewd by another meeting. The expert consultation noted that no single control measure was sufficiently effective in reducing either the prevalence or the level of contamination of broilers and poultry meat with NT-Salmonella spp. Instead, it was emphasized that control strategies based on multiple intervention steps would have the greatest impact on controlling NT-Salmonella spp. in the broiler production chain. This report describes the output of this expert meeting and the advice herein is useful for both risk assessors and risk managers, at national and international levels and those in the food industry working to control the hazard in poultry.

    Salmonellosis and campylobacteriosis are among the most frequently reported foodborne diseases worldwide. While numerous potential vehicles of transmission exist, commercial chicken meat has been identified as one of the most important food vehicles for these organisms. As a result, the Codex Alimentarius Commission agreed that guidelines for the control of Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry was a priority and initiated their development in 2007. I n order t o continue t h e i r work and en sure t h a t i t was underpinned with the most robust scientific data, the Codex Committee in Food Hygiene requested FAO and WHO to provide them with the necessary scientific advice. In response to that request, FAO and WHO convened a Technical Meeting from 4 to 8 May 2009 in Rome, Italy, the discussions and the outcome of which are documented in this report. This volume and others in this Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk m anagers, including international scientific committees, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food producers and industries and other people or institutions with an interest in the area of microbiological hazards in foods, their impact on human health and food trade and their control.

    Risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens. Interpretative summary. Microbiological Risk Assessment Series (MRA) 11 2009

    This risk assessment has been elaborated over a number of years. A number of national risk assessments that were available or being finalized when this work was initiated in 2001 were used as a basis from which to elaborate this risk assessment. In the course of its development, the risk assessment has been reviewed by two expert consultations—in 2001 and 2002—and been presented in various forums, including the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene and some international scientific conferences and mee tings. Finally, it was subjected to peer review in 2006. Comments and feedback received at each of these steps have been taken into account in the finalization of the risk assessment. In parallel to the elaboration of this risk assessment, research into Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens and related issues has been ongoing, and risk assessment work at a national level has continued in some countries. Taking this into consideration, the recent literature has been reviewed and incorporated int o this work as appropriate to ensure that the risk assessment is current at the time of publication in terms of recent developments in scientific knowledge and data.
