Prevalence and Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Salmonella Serovars Isolated from U.S. Retail Ground Pork

  19 March 2021

One objective of this study was to determine overall prevalence of Salmonella in ground pork from U.S. retail stores over three seasons including both case-ready and store-ground packages. Package types collected included: overwrap, chub, modified atmosphere packaging, and other (plastic or wax paper wrapped). Because package type represents different production systems and are subject to varied microbiological government regulation and testing methodologies, both USDA-FSIS and FDA Salmonella isolation protocols were performed. Another objective of the study was to determine serotypes and antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of the isolates obtained from the ground pork samples.
