39 tons of Butterball ground turkey recalled after salmonella cases

Butterball is recalling 39 tons of ground turkey products due to potential samonella contamination, the North Carolina-based company said in a statement Wednesday. Eating or handling contaminated food can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses.

We present the clinical case of a patient who presented to our emergency room with a chief complaint of left shoulder and left upper quadrant abdominal pain. Abdominal imaging showed an intrasplenic collection suspicious for a hemorrhage or an abscess. Percutaneous drainage was successfully performed, followed by conservative management with intravenous antibiotics. The culture of the fluid drained from the spleen was positive for Salmonella Saintpaul. The patient improved and was discharged. A high degree of clinical suspicion is necessary for early identification of a splenic abscess. Splenectomy can be avoided with the ...

WuAbstractTo increase the safety of fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, this study developed an efficient and practical treatment strategy that implements multiple antimicrobial wash “hurdles” using industrial realistic treatment times in combination with freezing (at −17 °C for 1 week) against Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Typhimurium on blueberries. To note synergistic effects of the sequential antimicrobial washes, a portable...

AbstractSeveral statistical models for salmonella source attribution have been presented in the literature. However, these models have often been found to be sensitive to the model parameterization, as well as the specifics of the data set used. The Bayesian salmonella source attribution model presented here was developed to be generally applicable with small and sparse annual data sets obtained over several years. The full Bayesian model was modularized into three parts (an exposure model, a subtype distribution model, and an epidemiological model) in order to separately estimate unknown parameters in each module. The pro...

In this study, a Lactic acid bacteria (LAB), isolated from Vietnamese traditional fermented yogurt (Lactobacillus plantarum SC01), was encapsulated in alginate-gelatin (ALG-GEL) and the effect of incubation temperature, medium pH and surfactants were assessed. The aims of this research were to evaluate antimicrobial activity of bacteriocin produced by L. plantarum SC01. Another aim the research was to study the quality of pork meat treated with its Bacteriocin in 2 h as a bio-preservative at different storage times (0 h, 12 h, 24 h and 48 h) in room temperature, compared to control (treated with salt 40.0%). The antimicrob...

Abstract For almost a decade, the number of Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serovar Infantis-positive broiler flocks has been steadily increasing in Slovenia, doubling the number of positive holdings in only a few years. Since multidrug resistant S. Infantis isolates are highly prevalent in the broiler meat industry and may represent a public health concern through the food chain, we aimed to investigate the antimicrobial susceptibility, genetic diversity, and biofilm-forming ability of S. Infantis from Slovenian broiler flocks. A total of 87 S. Infantis strains isolated from broiler faeces in the period b...

moud Sitohy The present work was carried out to determine the characteristics and antibacterial activity of 7S and 11S globulins isolated from cowpea seed (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.). The molecular mass of 7S globulin was demonstrated by SDS-PAGE bands to be of about 132, 129 and 95 kDa corresponding the α/, α and β subunits. The molecular mass of 11S globulin was demonstrated by SDS-PAGE bands to be existed between 28 and 52 kDa corresponding the basic and acidic subunits. The minimum inhibitory concentrations MICs of 7S and 11S globulins isolated from cowpea seed were determined agains...

by Andrea Parisi, John A. Crump, Russell Stafford, Kathryn Glass, Benjamin P. Howden, Martyn D. Kirk NontyphoidalSalmonella is a major contributor to the global burden of foodborne disease, with invasive infections contributing substantially to illnesses and deaths. We analyzed notifiable disease surveillance data for invasive nontyphoidalSalmonella disease (iNTS) in Queensland, Australia. We used Poisson regression to estimate incidence rate ratios by gender, age group, and geographical area over 2007 –2016. There were 995 iNTS cases, with 945 (92%) confirmed by blood culture.Salmonella Virchow accounted for 254 (2...
