A collaborative study was performed in 15 laboratories to evaluate the use of motility enrichment on modified semisolid Rappaport-Vassiliadis (MSRV) medium for rapid Salmonella detection in a variety of food products. The results of this procedure were compared with those obtained by the cultural procedure using Rappaport-Vassiliadis (RV) broth as selective enrichment and modified brilliant green agar for selective plating. The tests were performed with Salmonella reference samples (SRS) as well as with naturally contaminated food products. When SRS were used without added food the productivity of both MSRV and RV was 96%. When SRS were combined with reference samples containing competitive bacteria the productivity was 98% for MSRV and 95% for RV. In the tests with food samples the productivity of MSRV was 92% with SRS added to food and 96% with naturally contaminated samples, while the productivity of RV was 88% and 90%, respectively. Statistical analysis showed that there was no significant difference between the procedures.
