Bacterial populations on dressed pig carcasses.

PMID:  3549337     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Samples were collected at two abattoirs from four sites on pig carcasses as they were being placed in a chiller. Bacteriological examination showed that no single sampling site could be used to assess the microbiological status of pig carcass surfaces. Sampling from multiple sites on a carcass may be required to assess the degree of contamination by different bacteria. It is suggested that the hygiene of slaughtering and dressing of pig carcasses at an abattoir cannot be assessed on a single visit and that a number of visits are necessary to establish a hygiene pattern.
