Parasites associés à la viande de porc et aux produits dérivés

  title={Parasites associ{\'e}s {\`a} la viande de porc et aux produits d{\'e}riv{\'e}s},
  author={H. R. Gamble},
Three parasites pose a public health risk from the ingestion of raw or undercooked pork, namely: Trichinella spiralis, Taenia solium and Toxoplasma gondii. Inspection procedures, when practised according to prescribed methods, are effective in eliminating the majority of risks from T. spiralis and T. solium. No suitable methods for the post-slaughter detection of T. gondii are available. All three parasites are inactivated by various methods of cooking, freezing and curing; some information is…

Outbreak of trichinellosis associated with eating cougar jerky.

The report of cougar meat as a source of human trichinellosis and the finding of freeze-resistant Trichinella organisms in wildlife in Idaho extends the range of this genotype.

It is demonstrated that the pooled sample digestion method using a 5-g sample size is the most effective inspection method for reducing the risk of human exposure to T. spiralis in pork.

Effect of Freezing on Infectivity of Toxoplasma Gondii Tissue Cysts in Pork.

To study the effect of low temperatures on infectivity of Toxoplasma gondii tissue cysts, pork from infected pigs was mixed with infected mouse brains and homogenized thoroughly. Twenty-gram samples

Tapeworms, Meat and Man: A Brief Review and Update of Cysticercosis Caused by Taenia Saginata and Taenia Solium.

Three species of tapeworms may be transmitted to man by ingestion of animal flesh: Taenia saginata , Taenia solium , and Diphyllobothrium latum . The first two are the subject of this brief review

Arctic trichinosis: two Alaskan outbreaks from walrus meat.

The arctic form of Trichinella spiralis that infects terrestrial and marine mammals is of importance in public health because persons living in arctic regions still depend on wild animals for


The data indicate that 30 krad cesium-137 gamma radiation can be delivered to split market-weight hog carcasses with acceptable uniformity, and that under all conditions tested such a dose can provide a substantial margin of safety for human consumption of heavily infected meat.

Destruction of Trichinella spiralis during cooking.

Results indicate that with the time and temperatures used in this study, some rapid methods of cooking pork chops that involved the use of a microwave oven did not completely destroy T. spiralis larvae in pork chops.

The thermal death point of cysticerci of Taenia saginata.

To obtain specific information on the exact temperatures at which cysticerci of Taenia saginata die, a series of tests was carried out in which small pieces of flesh containing the encapsulated parasites, were heated to various temperatures in physiologic saline or Ringer's solution.

Bioassay Analysis of Dry-Cured Ham Processed to Affect Trichinella spiralis

Results could indicate insufficient aging time at 10°C for medium hams and the need for reviewing current USDA-FSIS regulations for the destruction of T. spiralis.
