Abstract:

Magnitude of illness due to meat consumption is unknown due to lack of surveillance networks. Monitoring the food borne pathogens and indicators of contamination in primary production at abattoirs is imperative for creating data bank and for effective control of such pathogens before they enter the food chain. Micro-organisms of hygienic interest in respiratory tract were screened for incidence at organized and un-organized abattoirs of Jammu region. The suspected samples were collected from nasal cavity, trachea and lungs by use of cotton swabs kept in transport media. A total of 330 samples were collected and analyzed for Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Pasteurella spp., Pseudomonas spp. and E. coli. Apparently healthy animals and diseased animals showed incidence of microbes as 45.59% and 86.86% respectively. Nasal swab, tracheal samples and lung samples respectively showed incidence of 69.72%, 65.18% and 50.00% respectively. Staphylococcus spp. showed highest percentage (35.26%) while E. coli was represented the lowest (3.76%). Streptococcus, Pasteurella and Pseudomonas respectively, represented 23.67%, 22.70% and 11.11%.
