Research – Reducing the risk of Salmonella re-contamination in feed

Poultry World

Deploying risk mitigation strategies across the feed-to-food production chain can help assure safe animal feed and poultry production. However, certain processes, such as the desiccation (drying out) of salmonella cells, can circumvent routine cleaning and hygiene practices.

During certain phases of feed production, salmonella cells may become dormant only to re-activate later in the production process. The inability to detect dormant salmonella cells may undermine routine hygiene checks and threaten feed safety. This risk demands strategies that go beyond hydrothermal treatment. Research has shown that preservation strategies, including the application of potent buffered and synergistic blends of organic acids and surfactants, can significantly reduce ­contamination risk during animal feed processing.
