With a steady increase in meat and poultry consumption globally, confirming the microbial safety of these products is more critical than ever to reduce biological hazards. While various pathogens can be present within meat, Salmonella represents a common presence, and cause of foodborne disease in humans with around 1 million cases and 300 deaths annually in the United States.

In this upcoming SelectScience webinar, Erin Crowley, Chief Scientific Officer at Q Laboratories, Inc., and Martin Weidmann, Gellert Family Professor in Food Safety at Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, will discuss the major public health risks posed in poultry and meat production, where Salmonella serovars Typhimurium and Enteritidis are associated with outbreaks from poultry, eggs, and meat. Hear about the global impact of Salmonella on the meat and poultry supply chain and validation methods for microbiology in food.
