Hänninen, M. L. (2005) Salmonella and campylobacter in organic egg production - with special reference to the Finnish situation. Paper at: Enhancing animal health security and food safety in organic livestock production : the 3rd SAFO workshop, Falenty, Poland, 16-18 September 2004.
In Finland, an ongoing (2003-2005) research project on organic egg production, animal welfare and food safety is examining campylobacter and salmonella contamination of approximately 20 organic layer farms. Adequate biosecurity levels, lowering the number of potential zoonotic infection sources in the vicinity of hen houses and vaccination of hens against S. Enteritidis are available tools to decrease contamination of organic laying hens by campylobacters or salmonella.
