We know that contamination of foodstuffs by harmful bacteria can lead to serious foodborne illnesses and can be life-threatening — both to humans and animals. Salmonellosis is a foodborne illness caused by various serovars of non-host adapted paratyphoid Salmonella, leading to morbidity, mortality and economic losses.
Pig meat products can be carriers and transmitters of human salmonellosis, with Salmonella enterica Typhimurium being one of the predominant serovars associated with pig meat. Other serovars — Derby, Rissen, Infantis and Enteritidis — are also frequently found in pig products, all of which are reported in the feed of both animals and humans.
At Kemin, we strive to support you in producing Salmonella-free pig products, in the effort to contribute to the UN’s One Health concept — limiting the transmission of zoonotic agents from feed to pigs and then pork to humans. Our integrated feed-to-farm approach, utilizing our Sal CURB® and FormaXOLTM products, together with our Customer Lab Services (CLS) and Kemin Application Service (KAS), help us achieve this.
