Salmonella serovars in food according to RASFF system notifications in 2000-2017
The article concerns the occurrence of Salmonella bacilli in various food groups in the years 2000-2017 and an analysis of the incidence of its serovars. The analysis was based on data collected in the RASFF system regarding notifications submitted as a result of the presence of salmonella in food. In the analyzed period, the most frequent serovars were S. Typhimurium (503 notifications), S. Enteritidis (401 notifications) and S. Infantis (106 notifications). A disturbing phenomenon is a marked increase in the frequency of occurrence of Salmonella in the analyzed food. To a large extent this situation resulted from the increase in the frequency of Salmonella detection in poultry and poultry meat products, as well as more frequent occurrence in fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices as well as in nuts and their products, and in seeds.
Keywords: Salmonella serovars, food, products of animal origin
