Interpretive Summary: Poultry products continue to be implicated as the predominate source of food-borne pathogens worldwide. Most food-borne pathogen contamination from poultry originates from pre-slaughter poultry infections. This book chapter will address several potential areas of concern regarding the microbial ecology of food-borne pathogens within the environment. The interaction of food-borne pathogens, beneficial bacteria, and environmental parameters will be postulated and discussed in this section. This is the second edition of the book.

Technical Abstract: Poultry products continue to be implicated as the predominate source of food-borne pathogens worldwide. Most food-borne pathogen contamination from poultry originates from ante mortem poultry infections. This book section will address several potential areas of concern regarding the microbial ecology of food-borne pathogens within the environment. The interaction of food-borne pathogens, beneficial bacteria, and environmental parameters will be postulated and discussed in this section. This is the second edition of the book.
