Enterococci are members of the normal flora of the gastrointestinal tract of human and animals.
Because of their ubiquity, enterococci have been introduced in programs to evaluate the hazard of transmission of resistant bacterial strains through the food chain.
The aim of this study was to assess the antimicrobial resistance profile of Enterococcus isolated from swine carcasses at the pre-chill step of processing. Material, Methods & Results: Pig carcasses were sampled at three commercial slaughterhouses (A, B and C).
On each of two sampling occasions swabs of 100 cm2 areas were taken from each ham, back, belly and jowl of a total of 14 pre-chill carcasses.
Enterococci were isolated and counted in KF Streptococcus Agar, and typical c...
