Salmonella and eggs, sounds familiar? This bacterium belongs to the family of enterobacteriaceae, and the disease it produces, salmonellosis, is known worldwide both in the food industry and by consumers. This bacterium is not only present in eggs, but also in foods such as chicken, pork, fruits and vegetables and even in processed foods.
Therefore, it is very important to maintain good hygiene practices in order to avoid contamination of food by this pathogen, since the losses caused to companies by outbreaks can be very high, in addition to damaging the company’s image. Moreover, given the severity of the pathology, legal requirements determine that it must be absent in the food, so additional barriers to its presence are always necessary since the raw material with which you manufacture is not always the same.
