Mission:
The mission of the Poultry Microbiological Safety and Processing Research Unit is to develop technology to diminish and control the association with and colonization of chickens by human bacterial enteropathogens (i.e., Salmonella and Campylobacter). The research addresses all phases of production from the egg to the processing plant so that chickens can be delivered to processing plants with reduced or no Salmonella and Campylobacter minimizing consumer exposure to enteropathogens. The research program is carried out with four research projects.
