AECL conducted a program of consultation with key through-chain stakeholders over a period of 12 months, to explore and document the public health risks associated with all aspects of egg production, from on-farm through to egg/egg product handling and hygiene. This work focused on the presence of Salmonella spp. The aim of the consultation has been to support stakeholders to reduce Salmonella load through-chain, through the compilation of comprehensive information about Salmonella and Salmonella risk identification and management.

AECL has developed a series of Salmonella posters that highlight the key concerns from the report for farms; egg collection, grading, washing and packing; feed and water; storage and transport; and egg products. Download them from the link below or contact AECL to order a printed copy.

This report will soon be developed into an online tool to enable stakeholders to easily identify risks to their particular operations. Standby for more on this soon!
