Abstract For decades, Salmonella Typhimurium and Salmonella Enteritidis have prevailed in several countries as agents of salmonellosis outbreaks. In Brazil, the largest exporter of poultry meat, relatively little attention has been paid to infrequent serovars. Here, we report the emergence and characterization of rare serovars isolated from food and related sources collected between 2014 and 2016 in Brazil. Twenty-two Salmonella enterica isolates were analyzed through the use of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) genotyping. These isolates were clas...

Abstract Cantaloupes have emerged as significant vehicles of widespread foodborne illness outbreaks caused by bacterial pathogens, including Salmonella. The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficiency of Salmonella colonization and internalization in cantaloupes by relevant routes of contamination. Cantaloupe plants (Cucumis melo 'reticulatus') from two cultivars 'Athena' (Eastern) and 'Primo' (Western) were grown from commercial seed. Plants were maintained in the NCSU BSL-3P phytotron greenhouse. Salmonella enterica (a cocktail of cantaloupe-associated outbreak serovars Javiana, Newport, Panama, Poon...

Purpose of review Recent attempts at mapping Typhoid epidemiology have revealed an enormous burden of disease in developing countries. Countries hitherto believed to have a low incidence, such as the African subcontinent, on accurate mapping were found to have a significant burden of disease. Drug resistance, because of rampant overuse of antibiotics, has driven selection pressure to extensively drug-resistant typhoid becoming a reality in the Indian subcontinent. With widespread travel, importation of this variety of typhoid to nonendemic countries is likely to lead to outbreaks in a nonimmune population. Recent findin...

Abstract Background: The 21st century has seen a wide range of diseases resulting from zoonotic infections, of which bacterial infections have led to outbreaks of food-borne diseases. Aim: The study looks at bacterial pathogen carriage by farm rats and their antimicrobial susceptibility, with the view of providing insights for antimicrobial surveillance. Method: Farm rats of Rattus rattus species where randomly collected alive from farms in Al-Ahsa using food baits. They were anaesthetize with urethane within 4 h of collection and were unconscious for the collection of samples. Basic bacteriologic...

(Society for Risk Analysis) Current poultry food safety guidelines for Salmonella, the leading cause of foodborne illness outbreaks, are inadequate. A new study conducted by Thomas Oscar, USDA Agricultural Research Service, " Salmonella prevalence alone is not a good indicator of poultry food safety, " published in Risk Analysis, explores additional factors that must be considered in order to identify poultry products that are truly safe for human consumption.
