Lithuania Condemns 40 Tons of Imported Poultry Meat


It is apparent that Lithuania has imposed a zero tolerance for Salmonella contamination in imported poultry meat.  Press reports note that a number of consignments from Eastern European nations have been condemned with up to 40 tons destroyed most recently.  Given previous reports of Salmonella on poultry processed in Poland, it is understandable that more than a third of the condemned consignments were supplied by this nation. During the first five months of this year 18 of 19 batches of adulterated poultry meat were originated from Poland. Other sources of contaminated products included Hungary and Romania.

Serotypes involved in condemned poultry meat included S.Enteritidis, Infantis, Typhimurium, and Newport.
