Detection strategy targeting a chloramphenicol resistance gene from genetically modified bacteria in food and feed products

genes harboured by such GMM is currently available for the enforcement laboratories. In reason of the increasing interest of the competent authorities to be able to assess the potential risks related to ...

Use of next‐generation sequencing in microbial risk assessment

necessity to be able to assess the potential microbial risks along the food chain. Risk assessment relies on sound scientific data. Unfortunately, often, quality data are limited if not lacking. ...

Transfer of Campylobacter from a Positive Batch to Broiler Carcasses of a Subsequently Slaughtered Negative Batch: A Quantitative Approach.

batches decreased over the first 20 min of sampling time. However, the reduction was slower than previously estimated in risk assessment studies, suggesting that pathogen transfer during crosscontamination ...

Infection due to travel-related carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae, a largely underestimated phenomenon in Belgium.

Sensitivity Tests Needs Assessment Risk Assessment Travel Abstract: BACKGROUND: Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) are emerging worldwide, representing a major threat for public health. Early CPE ...

Co-occurrence of free-living protozoa and foodborne pathogens on dishcloths: implications for food safety.

Moreover, important foodborne pathogens are also regularly recovered. This simultaneous occurrence makes dishcloths a potential risk factor for cross-contamination and a microbial niche for bacteria- FLP ...

Prevalence, risk factors and genetic diversity of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus carried by humans and animals across livestock production sectors.

Humans Livestock Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Microbial Sensitivity Tests prevalence Risk Factors Staphylococcal Infections Virulence Factors Abstract: OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess ...

The importance of sample size in the determination of a flock-level antimicrobial resistance profile for Escherichia coli in broilers.

profiles is important to guide therapeutic use of antimicrobials and to assess risk factors for the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance. As such, it is of utmost importance to optimize the ...

Expert judgement in a risk assessment model for Salmonella spp. in pork: the performance of different weighting schemes.

Studies Swine Swine Diseases Abstract: A structured expert judgement study was carried out in order to obtain input parameters for a quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) model. This model aimed to ...

NUSAP method for evaluating the data quality in a quantitative microbial risk assessment model for Salmonella in the pork production chain.

assessment pedigree (NUSAP) system was implemented to evaluate the quality of input parameters in a quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) model for Salmonella spp. in minced pork meat. The input ...

Tetracycline-resistance in lactose-positive enteric coliforms originating from Belgian fattening pigs: degree of resistance, multiple resistance and risk factors.
