Leading the Shared Effort to Control Salmonella

It takes the entire poultry industry — both live-side and processing — working together to best protect consumers from the devastating effects of Salmonella. That's why Elanco works closely with integrated poultry companies to help reduce Salmonella at the source: the farm.

Elanco's team of food safety experts can help poultry processors evaluate and implement comprehensive safety protocols, including pre-harvest interventions such as Salmonella vaccines.

Salmonella Vaccines —
An Effective Weapon in the Fight

When used as part of a comprehensive food safety strategy, Salmonella vaccines have proven to reduce Salmonella in birds being processed. That's especially true of Salmonella B and D serotypes, which are the most harmful to humans and hardest to eliminate with in-plant interventions.

Salmonella vaccines use tiny doses of weakened or killed (inactivated) bacteria to stimulate the birds' immune response and create a natural defense against the bacteria.

Dr. Beth Krushinskie, a food safety industry consultant, shares how Salmonella vaccines work to help reduce Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella Vaccines Are Safe and Effective

43% Reduction

Administering vaccines to breeders and their progeny reduced the overall prevalence of Salmonella by 43% in more than 3,800 hot-rehang and part rinse samples during a two-year period.

Administering Salmonella vaccines to breeders and their progeny significantly reduced the combined prevalence of highly pathogenic serotypes B and D by 26.3% over a two-year period tracking more than 3,800 hot-rehang and part rinse samples.

26% Reduction
