The Swedish control of Salmonella, with special reference to Salmonella enteritidis, in poultry is described.
The control is directed at all serotypes of Salmonella and imported grandparent chickens are controlled, which is considered to be the main reason why Sweden so far is not found to be involved in the worldwide spread of different phagetypes of S. enteritidis.
However, this spread has initiated a more stringent control of Salmonella in layers as earlier existed in broilers.
The objective of the control is to deliver Salmonella-free food to the consumers.
The concept is that animals delivered for slaughter shall be free from Salmonella by applying the following strategies : Prevent contamination of all parts of the production chain.
Monitor the production chain at critical control points to detect if Salmonella contamination occurs.
Undertake actions necessary to fulfill the objective of the control when Salmonella contamination is detected.
As the control is directed at all serotypes of Salmonella, and especially as no Salmonella-infected poultry are allowed to be imported, Sweden is so far not involved in the pandemic spread of S. enteritidis.
The actions undertaken and the result of the control, with special reference to S. enteritidis and poultry, is summarized in the following sections of this paper.
A summary of the control is also presented in Table 1.
