Salmonella, Pork Production, and Consumer Safety

Pre-Harvest Risk Factors for Salmonella in Pork ProductionSalmonella and Pigs Dr. Marcos Rostagno, Research Animal Scientist/Adjunct Faculty, USDA-ARS / Purdue University, provides an overview of salmonella and its role in pork production. Salmonella tends to be thought of as a food safety and public health issue. With agriculture being perceived by consumers as really food production, pork production practices will be seen in the light of food production too. Dr. Rostagno's take aways: Everyone has a critical role in the salmonella challenge: producers, processors, retailers, and consumers alike.
