STANDARD TESTS
SALMONELLA

Salmonella is the second most common bacterial cause of foodborne illness in New Zealand. There are many different kinds of salmonella with different sources and severity of illness. Salmonella live in the gut of many farm animals and can contaminate meat, eggs, poultry and milk. Other foods like green vegetables, fruit and shellfish can become contaminated through contact with wildlife or untreated human and animal waste. Some strains can make people sick causing severe stomach cramps, diarrhoea and fever.

This test is performed by FDA BAM April 2003 (modified) and APHA Compendium of Methods for the Microbiological Examination of Foods 5th Edition 36.5. Negative results are available in 96 hours using RVS and TT broth followed by streaking on XLD, HE and BS agars. Positive results are available in 7 days using confirmation tests of Microbact 12A and Oxoid Salmonella Test Kit.
