Abstract or Summary
  • Environmental swabs and meat samples from two of three seafood processing plants sampled on the Oregon Coast were found to contain Salmonella. Although these enteropathogens were not isolated from the finished products, the danger of contamination is great since the processing received by many seafoods is not designed to yield a sterile product. The incidence of Salmonella in gulls on the Oregon Coast was studied to determine the possible role these birds may have in the contamination of seafood products with salmonellae. Of 521 fecal specimens examined, nearly two percent were found to contain Salmonella. When multiplied by the number of gulls in the environment, this amounts to a tremendous reservoir of infection: Protection of raw and processed seafoods from this source of contamination is essential to insure the distribution of safe and wholesome products. Salmonella typhimurium was isolated from seven samples, while S. enteritidis and S. reading were each recovered once.
