Abstract

Salmonella and Campylobacter infections constitute a major public health problem. Besides, these infections have considerable economic consequences. Both Salmonella and Campylobacter infections in humans have strongly been associated with poultry products. Despite all efforts made in the poultry production chains to eradicate or reduce Salmonella or Campylobacter bacteria, the end products remain contaminated with these organisms. In the present paper the need for end product decontamination and preservation of poultry and egg products is discussed.
