Abstract

Of 137 chickens handled in some processing plants, 16 (11.6%) were proved to be Salmonella carriers. The amount of organisms harbored was generally large in the skin and viscera and small in feathers. There was a tendency that the contamination rate increased with the advance in the meat processing in the plant, although the amount of contaminating organisms was small.
Salmonella sofia was the most prevalent of six types detected. A tendency was shown that the type and pattern of drug resistance of Salmonella distributed in the living bird, carcase, and apparatus of rcmoving feathers varied from one processing plant to another.
