We examined the prevalence of three foodborne organisms, Arcobacter, Campylobacter and Salmonella, in 50 samples of retail ground chicken meat. Arcobacter spp. was isolated from 26 (52%) of these samples, A. butzleri being detected in 21 samples, A. cryaerophilus (group 1B) in 3 samples, both A. butzleri and A.cryaerophilus (group 1B) in 1 sample, and A. skirrowii in 1 sample. C. jejuni was isolated from 11 (22%) of the samples, and Salmonella was isolated from 6 (12%) of the samples. Serovars S. Infantis was detected in 5 samples and S. Yovokome in 1 sample. These findings suggest that retail ground chicken meat may be a potential vehicle for transmitting Arcobacter, Campylobacter and Salmonella infectious diseases.
