Spotlight on poultry processing microorganisms

  • A microscopic image of a Campylobacter cell.


    Campylobacter is part of the natural gut microflora in turkeys, chickens, sheep, swine and cattle. Testing for Campylobacter is important for food manufacturers as it only takes 500 Campylobacter cells to cause infections in humans.


  • A microscopic image of a Listeria bacterium.


    Listeria monocytogenes is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, bacterium – microscopic in appearance, but looming large among public health officials for its ability to cause fatalities.

  • An image of a Salmonella bacterium.


    Salmonella stands out among pathogenic organisms for its high prevalence. The illness it causes, salmonellosis, is the most commonly reported cause of food-borne illness today.
