Abstract:

Campylobacteriosis is a food-borne bacterial illness due to the consumption of poultry meats and its by-products. Due to improper slaughtering method, carcass may get contaminated with intestinal contents. A study was conducted to identify the presence of Campylobacter jejuni in chicken meat by polymerase chain reaction. 36 samples were collected from different parts of Chennai and were tested for the presence of Campylobacter jejuni by targeting Hyp gene with 500bp by PCR. None of the samples were shown to be positive for Campylobacter jejuni. The test concludes that the processing of chicken was done in perfect manner without any cross contamination.
