Project Reference: 07-2008
Commencement Date: January, 2009
Project Duration: 12 months
This study determined the presence of Salmonella spp. and Campylobacter spp. in retail packs of raw chicken purchased throughout the Republic of Ireland. Overall 500 packs of raw chicken were purchased and analysed. The results were then compared with studies from around the world to allow their relative significance.
The prevalence of Salmonella spp. and Campylobacter spp. in retail packs of raw chicken in the Republic of Ireland was defined. This study benchmarked the prevalence of these two major foodborne pathogens in the Republic of Ireland.
