This report outlines the development of a rapid multiplex real-time PCR procedure that facilitates the identification of Salmonella serogroup I and the serovars of the group. Using Salmonella Gaminara serovar (O16:d:1,7) as an example, first the gene(s) responsible for expression of the somatic O antigen, O16, and the nucleotide sequence of the variable-region of genes encoding the flagellar phase-1 (d) and phase-2 (1,7) antigens were identified. Then, a multiplex real-time PCR was designed that incorporated primers and probes specific for the three target genes and confirmed the specificity. The assay had 100% inclusivity...

In this study, we reported a colorimetric biosensor for ultrasensitive detection of Salmonella Typhimurium using a magnetic grid separation column to efficiently separate target bacteria from large volume of sample and platinum loaded zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (Pt@ZIF-8) nanocatalysts to effectively amplify biological signal. The target Salmonella cells in large volume of sample were first separated and concentrated using the magnetic grid separation column with immune magnetic particle chains, then conjugated with the immune Pt@ZIF-8 nanocatalysts to mimic peroxidase for catalysis of hydrogen peroxide-3,3′,5,...

This article highlights the contributions made by public health laboratories in transforming PulseNet's surveillance and describes how the transformation is changing local and national surveillance practices. Our data show that WGS is better at identifying clusters than PFGE, especially for clonal organisms such as Salmonella Enteritidis. The need to develop prioritization schemes for cluster follow-up and additional resources for both public health laboratory and epidemiology departments will be critical as PulseNet implements WGS for foodborne disease surveillance in the United States.

(BfR Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) To make food even safer for humans, experts from scientific institutions, food regulatory authorities and the business community will discuss current developments and strategies at the 'Zoonoses and Food Safety' Symposium at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) on 4 and 5 November 2019, in Berlin-Marienfelde. Because some micro-organisms in food can cause health problems. Campylobacter in raw milk, salmonella in eggs or listeria in ready-to-eat foods often lead to outbreaks affecting numerous patients.

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Carla Correia-Gomes, Nick SparksAbstractBackyard poultry producers have been associated with outbreaks of exotic (e.g. avian influenza) and endemic (e.g. Salmonella) disease all over the world. Currently in the UK the registration of small flocks (less than 50 birds) with local authorities is voluntary therefore there is not an accurate record of how many keepers and birds there are or where they are located. This lack of information (e.g. how many birds they keep, what type of birds, biosecurity measures they implement, etc....

One person has died and eight people have been hospitalized due to salmonella linked to ground beef, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said in a statement Friday afternoon. The statement said that the CDC, the United States Department of Agriculture, and state-level public health and regulatory officials are looking into the outbreak of Salmonella Dublin in six states. Salmonella Dublin is a strain of bacteria often found in cattle, but can also infect humans and cause bloodstream infections. As of Friday, there have been ten reported cases of the infection linked to ground beef: eight people have gone to the hospital a...
