Analyses of data on Salmonella serovars and phage types derived from animals and food in the European Union

Project Details

Description

The objective is to analyse in detail Salmonella serovar and phage typing surveillance data as reported under the Directive 2003/99/EC (Zoonoses Directive) and through the completed EU-wide baseline studies.

The analysis will focus on the main relevant epidemiological findings based on frequency and spatial distributions of Salmonella serovars and phage types isolated from animals, food, feed and humans in EU.

Special attention will be given to analyse the data in order to investigate the contribution of each animal-food source to human salmonellosis i.e. a source attribution analysis.

The project is done in close collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
