An unfortunate fate for Salmonella!


This week in Geneva, Switzerland, the Joint Expert Meeting on Microbiological Risk Assessment (JEMRA) is holding an in-person expert meeting to discuss interventions to control Salmonella in poultry and poultry meat. The secretariat is happy to host international experts from all six FAO regions; Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America, Near East and North America.

The meeting is in response to a request from Codex Alimentarius, as they are looking to update guidance and best practices for poultry as salmonellosis continues to be a significant public health concern. Although the JEMRA has addressed Salmonella in poultry in the past, there have been significant advances in the science since their last publication in 2011.
