From February to November 2007, chicken meat preparations (n = 656) were sampled at 11 processing companies across Belgium. All samples were tested for Campylobacter by enrichment culture and by direct plating according to standard methods.

The study revealed a statistically significant variation in Campylobacter… CONTINUE READING
