The sampling protocol involved individual swabbing and culture from surfaces and items of equipment within each premises. This allowed the identification of many areas where salmonella control measures were not successful resulting in a cross-contamination hazard for eggs and chicks. Egg sanitisation and handling methods, design of incubator and whole building ventilation… CONTINUE READING
