Abstract:

Salmonella is one of the most pathogenic genera implicated in food-borne bacterial outbreaks and diseases. There are numerous transmission routes for Salmonellosis, but the majority of the human infections are derived from consumption of contaminated foods especially those of animal origin. The study was undertaken to determine the incidence and distribution of salmonella species in poultry meat shop premises.  A total no of 150 samples were procured from poultry shop premises in north Kolkata and analyzed for presence of salmonella strains. The study concluded that overall prevalence of salmonella species amongst all the samples as 4%.All the eight salmonella isolates were subjected to antibiotic sensitivity test.In this method   highest sensitivity was recorded against Ciprofloxacin (83.33%) and Chloramphenicol(83.33%) followed by Ampicillin, Cefotaxime, Ceftazidine, Nalidixic acid and Gentamicin(50% each). Low sensitivity was observed against Tetracycline (16.66%).


Keywords: Salmonella spp., Poultry meat, Characterization, Antibiotic sensitivity.
