Campylobacter genotypes from poultry transportation crates indicate a source of contamination and transmission.

Abstract:

AIMS: Crates used to transport live poultry can be contaminated with Campylobacter, despite periodic sanitization, and are potential vectors for transmission between flocks. We investigated the microbial contamination of standard and silver ion containing crates in normal use and the genetic structure of associated Campylobacter populations. METHODS AND RESULTS: Bacteria from crates were enumerated by appropriate culture techniques, and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) was used to determine ...
