Molecular risk assessment of Salmonella in red meat

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a type of gastroenteritis caused by Salmonella bacteria. It remains a significant public health issue in Australia, and foods of animal origin are most frequently considered to be the source of infection in humans. This project will conduct a molecular risk assessment of Salmonella in red meat in order to prepare for potential changes to regulations in the USA that may impact Australian exporters.
