Real-time monitoring of Escherichia coli O157:H7 adherence to beef carcass surface tissues with a bioluminescent reporter. (1/502)

A method for studying bacteria that are attached to carcass surfaces would eliminate the need for exogenous sampling and would facilitate understanding the interaction of potential human food-borne pathogens with food animal tissue surfaces. We describe such a method in which we used a bioluminescent reporter strain of Escherichia coli O157:H7 that was constructed by transformation with plasmid pCGLS1, an expression vector that contains a complete bacterial luciferase (lux) operon. Beef carcass surface tissues were inoculated with the bioluminescent strain, and adherent bacteria were visualized in real time by using a sensitive photon-counting camera to obtain in situ images. The reporter strain was found to luminesce from the tissue surfaces whether it was inoculated as a suspension in buffer or as a suspension in a bovine fecal slurry. With this method, areas of tissues inoculated with the reporter strain could be studied without obtaining, excising, homogenizing, and culturing multiple samples from the tissue surface. Use of the complete lux operon as the bioluminescent reporter eliminated the need to add exogenous substrate. This allowed detection and quantitation of bacterial inocula and rapid evaluation of adherence of a potential human pathogen to tissue surfaces. Following simple water rinses of inoculated carcass tissues, the attachment duration varied with different carcass surface types. On average, the percent retention of bioluminescent signal from the reporter strain was higher on lean fascia-covered tissue (54%) than on adipose fascia-covered tissue (18%) following water washing of the tissues. Bioluminescence and culture-derived viable bacterial counts were highly correlated (r2 = 0.98). Real-time assessment of microbial attachment to this complex menstruum should facilitate evaluation of carcass decontamination procedures and mechanistic studies of microbial contamination of beef carcass tissues.  (+info)

Outbreak of Hendra-like virus--Malaysia and Singapore, 1998-1999. (2/502)

During September 29, 1998-April 4, 1999, 229 cases of febrile encephalitis (111 [48%] fatal) were reported to the Malaysian Ministry of Health (MOH). During March 13-19, 1999, nine cases of similar encephalitic illnesses (one fatal) and two cases of respiratory illness occurred among abattoir workers in Singapore. Tissue culture isolation identified a previously unknown infectious agent from ill patients. This report summarizes the preliminary epidemiologic and laboratory investigations of these cases, which indicate that a previously unrecognized paramyxovirus related to, but distinct from, the Australian Hendra virus is associated with this outbreak.  (+info)

The prevalence of verotoxins, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella in the feces and rumen of cattle at processing. (3/502)

Fecal samples collected from cattle at processing during a 1-year period were tested for verotoxins (VT1, VT2), Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella. Verotoxins were detected in 42.6% (95% CI, 39.8% to 45.4%), E. coli O157:H7 in 7.5% (95% CI, 6.1% to 9.1%), and Salmonella in 0.08% (95% CI, 0.004% to 0.5%) of the fecal samples. In yearling cattle, the median within-lot prevalence (percentage of positive samples within a lot) was 40% (range, 0% to 100%) for verotoxins and 0% for E. coli O157:H7 (range, 0% to 100%) and Salmonella (range, 0% to 17%). One or more fecal samples were positive for verotoxins in 80.4% (95% CI, 72.8% to 86.4%) of the lots of yearling cattle, whereas E. coli O157:H7 were detected in 33.6% (95% CI, 26.0% to 42.0%) of the lots. In cull cows, the median within-lot prevalence was 50% (range, 0% to 100%) for verotoxins and 0% (range, 0% to 100%) for E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella (range, 0% to 0%). Verotoxins were detected in one or more fecal samples from 78.0% (95% CI, 70.4% to 84.2%) of the lots of cull cows, whereas E. coli O157:H7 were detected in only 6.0% (95% CI, 3.0% to 11.4%) of the lots of cull cows. The prevalence of verotoxins in fecal samples was lower in yearling cattle than in cull cows, whereas the prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 in fecal samples was higher in yearling cattle than in cull cows. The prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 in fecal samples was highest in the summer months. Rumen fill, body condition score, sex, type of cattle (dairy, beef), and distance travelled to the plant were not associated with the fecal prevalence of verotoxins or E. coli O157:H7. The prevalence of verotoxins in fecal samples of cull cows was associated with the source of the cattle. It was highest in cows from the auction market (52%) and farm/ranch (47%) and lowest in cows from the feedlot (31%). In rumen samples, the prevalence of verotoxins was 6.4% (95% CI, 4.2% to 9.4%), and it was 0.8% (95% CI, 0.2% to 2.3%) for E. coli O157:H7, and 0.3% (95% CI, 0.007% to 1.5%) for Salmonella.  (+info)

Update: outbreak of Nipah virus--Malaysia and Singapore, 1999. (4/502)

During March 1999, health officials in Malaysia and Singapore, in collaboration with Australian researchers and CDC, investigated reports of febrile encephalitic and respiratory illnesses among workers who had exposure to pigs. A previously unrecognized paramyxovirus (formerly known as Hendra-like virus), now called Nipah virus, was implicated by laboratory testing in many of these cases. Febrile encephalitis continues to be reported in Malaysia but has decreased coincident with mass culling of pigs in outbreak areas. No new cases of febrile illness associated with Nipah virus infection have been identified in Singapore since March 19, 1999, when abattoirs were closed. This report summarizes interim findings from ongoing epidemiologic and laboratory investigations in Malaysia and Singapore.  (+info)

Presence of Yersinia enterocolitica in tissues of orally-inoculated pigs and the tonsils and feces of pigs at slaughter. (5/502)

In order to study the early events associated with infection of swine by Yersinia enterocolitica, 42 five-week-old crossbred piglets were inoculated per os with approximately 10(8) Y. enterocolitica O:3. Groups of 5 animals (and one negative control) were euthanized 30 min, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 h following the infection. Palatine tonsils, retropharyngeal and mesenteric lymph nodes, esophagus, duodenum, jejunum, ileum (and Peyer's patches), stomach, liver, spleen and feces (from colon) were collected and analyzed for the presence of Y. enterocolitica by standard bacteriological procedures. Natural infections were also analyzed, as a complementary study, by taking one-gram samples of fecal material and tonsils from 291 pig carcasses less than 3 h after slaughter and culturing them for Y. enterocolitica using a cold enrichment technique. Within 30 min, Yersinia enterocolitica O:3 was already present at most sites. The presence of Y. enterocolitica in the liver of 3 out of 10 animals and also in the spleen of 3 out of 10 piglets, within the first 3 h postinfection, but not at later times (with one exception), probably indicated a transient bacteremia accompanying the initial stages of infection. The tonsils were colonized in most animals (13/20) as the bacteria remained present from 12 to 72 h postinfection, while only 4 out of 20 fecal samples were found to be positive over the same period. Up to 10(4) colony-forming units of Y. enterocolitica per gram of tonsil and fecal material were recovered. Finally, among the 291 animals sampled at the abattoir, a total of 79 were found positive, 70 of the tonsils sampled were positive, and bacteria were recovered in 17 fecal samples. It is therefore suggested that palatine tonsils are the most reliable tissue for the indication of an infection/colonization by Y. enterocolitica O:3 in swine and that the removal of this tissue during the slaughter process should be considered in order to minimize the possibility of contamination of meat products.  (+info)

Shoulder impingement syndrome in relation to shoulder intensive work. (6/502)

OBJECTIVES: To analyse the risk of shoulder impingement syndrome relative to shoulder intensive work. METHODS: A cross sectional study of a historical cohort of 1591 workers employed between 1986 and 1993 at a slaughterhouse or a chemical factory. Workers not doing tasks in slaughtering or meat processing constituted the reference group. Intensity of shoulder work in meat processing tasks was assessed by video based observations. Information on shoulder disorders was collected by questionnaire and by physical examinations. Impingement syndrome was diagnosed when shoulder symptoms had been present for at least 3 months during the past year and there were signs of subacromial impingement in the corresponding shoulder at physical examination. Shoulder function was assessed at the same occasion with the Constant scoring technique. Prevalence of shoulder impingement syndrome was analysed according to job title and cumulative exposure. RESULTS: Prevalence ratio for shoulder impingement syndrome was 5.27 (95% confidence interval (95% CI), 2.09 to 12.26) among currently working and 7.90 (95% CI, 2.94 to 21.18) among former slaughterhouse workers. Transformed model based prevalence ratios according to years in slaughterhouse work showed an overall association between cumulative exposure and risk for shoulder impingement syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the hypothesis that shoulder intensive work is a risk factor for impingement syndrome of the shoulder. Despite the historical cohort design healthy worker selection may have influenced the exposure-response relation found.  (+info)

Amplified fragment length polymorphism fingerprinting of Pseudomonas strains from a poultry processing plant. (7/502)

Molecular typing has been used previously to identify and trace dissemination of pathogenic and spoilage bacteria associated with food processing. Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) is a novel DNA fingerprinting technique which is considered highly reproducible and has high discriminatory power. This technique was used to fingerprint 88 Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas putida strains that were previously isolated from plate counts of carcasses at six processing stages and various equipment surfaces and environmental sources of a poultry abattoir. Clustering of the AFLP patterns revealed a high level of diversity among the strains. Six clusters (clusters I through VI) were delineated at an arbitrary Dice coefficient level of 0.65; clusters III (31 strains) and IV (28 strains) were the largest clusters. More than one-half (52.3%) of the strains obtained from carcass samples, which may have represented the resident carcass population, grouped together in cluster III. By contrast, 43.2% of the strains from most of the equipment surfaces and environmental sources grouped together in cluster IV. In most cases, the clusters in which carcass strains from processing stages grouped corresponded to the clusters in which strains from the associated equipment surfaces and/or environmental sources were found. This provided evidence that there was cross-contamination between carcasses and the abattoir environment at the DNA level. The AFLP data also showed that strains were being disseminated from the beginning to the end of the poultry processing operation, since many strains associated with carcasses at the packaging stage were members of the same clusters as strains obtained from carcasses after the defeathering stage.  (+info)

An outbreak of multidrug-resistant, quinolone-resistant Salmonella enterica serotype typhimurium DT104. (8/502)

BACKGROUND: Food-borne salmonella infections have become a major problem in industrialized countries. The strain of Salmonella enterica serotype typhimurium known as definitive phage type 104 (DT104) is usually resistant to five drugs: ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulfonamides, and tetracycline. An increasing proportion of DT104 isolates also have reduced susceptibility to fluoroquinolones. METHODS: The Danish salmonella surveillance program determines the phage types of all typhimurium strains from the food chain, and in the case of suspected outbreaks, five-drug-resistant strains are characterized by molecular methods. All patients infected with five-drug-resistant typhimurium are interviewed to obtain clinical and epidemiologic data. In 1998, an outbreak of salmonella occurred, in which the strain of typhimurium DT104 was new to Denmark. We investigated this outbreak and report here our findings. RESULTS: Until 1997, DT104 infections made up less than 1 percent of all human salmonella infections. The strain isolated from patients in the first community outbreak of DT104 in Denmark, in 1998 was resistant to nalidixic acid and had reduced susceptibility to fluoroquinolones. The outbreak included 25 culture-confirmed cases. Eleven patients were hospitalized, and two died. The molecular epidemiology and data from patients indicated that the primary source was a Danish swine herd. Furthermore, the investigation suggested reduced clinical effectiveness of treatment with fluoroquinolones. CONCLUSIONS: Our investigation of an outbreak of DT104 documented the spread of quinolone-resistant bacteria from food animals to humans; this spread was associated with infections that were difficult to treat. Because of the increase in quinolone resistance in salmonella, the use of fluoroquinolones in food animals should be restricted.  (+info)

European hygiene regulations require the condemnation of any unsafe food. However, there is little information identifying and quantifying condemnation of poultry carcases at slaughterhouses. We present an in-depth view of rates of and reasons for the condemnation of broiler, turkey, meat and force-feeding duck, guinea fowl carcases in France. The experiment was conducted in 10 slaughterhouses. For one year, all condemnations were recorded on a standard form following a national reference system. The rates of and reasons for condemnation, as well as factors influencing variation were investigated. The global condemnation rates were 1.04 per cent for broilers, 1.85 per cent for turkeys, 1.23 per cent for meat ducks, 1.42 per cent for force-feeding ducks and 1.20 per cent for guinea fowl. Condemnation rates depended on several factors including slaughterhouse, animal gender and season. Reasons for condemnation varied with species, for example, the three main reasons for broilers were cachexia ...

GAO reviewed the administration of the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Poultry Products Inspection Act by the Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) at meat and poultry slaughter plants that do business in interstate commerce. Certain areas were identified in which FSIS could improve inspection activities and plant managers could better carry out their responsibilities to assure that slaughter plant operations are sanitary and that meat and poultry products are wholesome, unadulterated, and properly marked.. Those areas needing improvement included: (1) sanitation; (2) pest control; (3) plant water systems; (4) product acceptance testing programs; (5) ante-mortem and post-mortem examinations; and (6) controls over condemned and inedible materials. Unannounced visits were made to 62 randomly selected meat and poultry slaughter plants in six States to evaluate plant and inspection staff compliance with inspection program requirements. Nearly one-fourth of those ...

ABSTRACT. Antimicrobial usage in food animals increases the prevalence of antimicrobial drug resistance among their enteric bacteria. It has been suggested that this resistance can in turn be transferred to people working with such animals, e.g. abattoir workers. Antimicrobial drug resistance was investigated for Escherichia coli from broilers raised on feed supplemented with antimicrobials, and the people who carry out evisceration, washing and packing of intestines in a high-throughput poultry abattoir in Gauteng, South Africa. Broiler carcasses were sampled from 6 farms, on each of which broilers are produced in a separate grow-out cycle. Per farm, 100 caeca were randomly collected 5 minutes after slaughter and the contents of each were selectively cultured for E. coli. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of each isolate was determined for the following antimicrobials: doxycycline, trimethoprim, sulphamethoxazole, ampicillin, enrofloxacin, fosfomycin, ceftriaxone and nalidixic acid. ...

Our story begins about a hundred years ago with the publishing of the powerful expose, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. In reading about the abuse of both animal and worker alike, not to mention the filth and contamination, the public was outraged and President Theodore Roosevelt was moved to take action.. At first it was mostly the sanitation which saw the most improvement, but by the 1940s and 50s worker conditions began to rapidly improve, and by the 1960s the workers had better pay and working conditions.. But during the 1970s things began to unravel. The speed of the slaughter and processing lines were greatly sped up, resulting in a huge increase in serious injuries and psychological stress. Worker pay started to decline as well, and union membership and influence were greatly diminished. The current situation is really bad and entails some of the most abusive working circumstances imaginable. Employee turnover rates of 80-100% per year are common at slaughterhouses.. The rate of worker ...
EFSA has published a scientific opinion on the welfare of bovines during the slaughter process. The opinion proposes monitoring indicators to be used and sampling protocols to be put in place at slaughterhouses. This work has been carried out in the context of the new EU legislation on the protection of animals at the time of killing (Council Regulation EC No 1099/2009). According to this legislation, business operators must ensure that animals do not present any signs of consciousness after stunning and before death.
An outbreak of eye diseases occurred among workers at a poultry abattoir in South Korea from December 2012 to June 2013. An epidemiological investigation of the causative agent was conducted. The workers were given a special health examination and workplace environmental monitoring was performed. Workers with ocular symptoms subsequently underwent an ophthalmic examination. From a total of 41 workers, 26 (63.4 %) were diagnosed with keratoepitheliopathy by ophthalmic examination. Environmental monitoring of the workplace revealed that the ultraviolet (UV) apron-disinfection lamp had not been turning off at the set times, and so the workers faces had been exposed to UV radiation. Effective radiation dose measurement showed a UV-B exposure of 7-30 μW/cm2, and a UV-C exposure of 40-200 μW/cm2; both values exceed the occupational exposure limits. The outbreak ceased after the lamp was repaired. This case shows that inappropriate use of the UV disinfection lamp can cause mass photokeratitis. In order to

Pig farming is wasteful too. Pigs, like other farm animals, are food factories in reverse, returning far less in pork than the calories and protein they are fed, since most of the nutrition fed to a pig is used for the animals energy and metabolism. When theres so much hunger in the world, and most of the worlds agricultural land is already being used to the maximum, feeding so much of our crops to farm animals is not the best way to feed people. The situation can be summed up by saying that pork production is both wasteful and polluting.. Things arent so good for the slaughterhouse workers either. Many of the more than 150,000 in America work in pig slaughterhouses. By many measures they have the worst and most dangerous job in America, and they suffer badly, both physically and emotionally.

Page 210 - Concern about prions has arisen with the advent of prion animal diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. The BSE prions concentrate in an animals brain and spinal cord, but they been detected only in sheep blood at low concentrations. Animal manure would have no or low concentrations of BSE prions except possibly for wastes from slaughterhouses (Ward et al. 1984); however the presence of prions in such wastes is uncertain (EPA 2001). Prions are generally transmitted from animal to animal (cow to cow, sheep to sheep). The risk of prion transmission to biosolids from animals is low but can increase with the presence of small amounts of neural tissues or placenta coming from slaughter houses. At present, there has been little evidence of prion-contaminated manures in the United States. ...
The UK abattoir industry slaughters over 26m units of livestock each year yielding in the region of 2m tonnes of red carcase worth a net contribution of £1.67b to the economy. The food industry defines meat obtained from mammals (regardless of cut or age) as red meat, this is because it contains more myoglobin than white meat obtained from poultry and fish.. Abattoir workers must hold a valid licence to operate, which is known as a certificate of competence in order to comply with the Welfare of Animals at the Time of Killing (WATOK) legislation, issued by the Food Standards Agency. Individuals must be over 18 years to obtain a certificate of competence, which entitles them to work in specified areas monitored by the official veterinarian.. From receiving animals in the strictly controlled handling (lairage) facility and through the slaughter process, abattoir workers need to be empathetic and respectful of animals. Team work and diligence is part and parcel of the role as well as upholding ...
A total of 65 identified isolates of coliform bacteria Salmonella, including Campylobacter and Staphylococcus isolated from different control points of a poultry slaughterhouse in Ankara, Turkey were characterized by morphological, biochemical and physiological tests including API 10 S system, and by plasmid profiles on agarose gel electrophoresis and whole-cell protein patterns on SDS-PAGE. Plasmids were detected in 53.8 % of the isolates. The molecular mass of the plasmids was within the range from 0.66 to 12.66 mDa. Electrophoretic banding patterns showed that whole cell protein profiles differed in several protein bands in Salmonella, Campylobacter and Staphylococcus species, but the differences were insufficient for reliable differentiation of bacteria species by SDS-PAGE method ...

Section 11. AGRICULTURAL WASTES RECOVERY OF PROTEIN FROM SLAUGHTERHOUSE EFFLUENTS BY DOUBLE ADJUSTMENT OF pH R. N. Cooper. Section Leader J. M. Russell, Chemist Meat Industry Research Institute of New Zealand (Inc.) Hamilton, New Zealand J. L. Adam. Engineer Ruakura Agricultural Research Station Hamilton, New Zealand The effluent from a slaughterhouse characteristically contains high concentrations of fat and organic nitrogen. Primary treatment of slaughterhouse effluents removes only 20% of the organic nitrogen [ 1 ], reflecting the large proportion that is soluble. Further treatment can therefore be effected only by biological or chemical methods. Chemical treatment of slaughterhouse effluents has been studied for a long time. However, attention has only recently been focused on recovering potentially valuable protein- aceous material from these effluents. All recovery techniques acidify the effluent to a pH between 3 and 5, and these techniques often use protein precipitants such as ...
The taking of private property by a governmental entity, pipeline or public utility for public use - commonly referred to as eminent domain or condemnation - is a unique legal proceeding that often pits the power and prowess of state and federal agencies, public authorities, cities, and utilities against landowners in a battle that often seems difficult to win.. And while some threats of condemnation can be challenged on the basis of valid public use or necessity, the vast majority of condemnation cases focus on the issue of just compensation due the landowner. When faced with the threat of condemnation, knowledge is power.. In this presentation, McAfee & Taft trial lawyers Joe Bocock and Jeff Todd discuss the four major stages of condemnation and share the key concepts landowners need to understand in order to successfully navigate the choppy waters of eminent domain.. ...
In September 2008, L214 investigated Metz (Moselle) Charal slaughterhouse. This hidden camera investigation was led by an activist from the association hired by the firm Charal as a slaughterhouse worker. According to the association, two previous applications for visiting were refused, by an e-mail in which the Charal company declares having made animal protection a central and specific part of their quality policy. The filmed investigation shows bovine slaughter which do not respect the operative regulation and lead to untenable death according to the association. The Minister of Agriculture, Bruno Le Maire was shocked by the pictures showing animals seeming to recover consciousness before and during being bled. L214 lodged a complaint against Charal Company on September 2009 about cruelty to animals. Charal wants L214 to remove the video from their websites, complains about violation of their site, and challenges charges by the association, denouncing an assembly with false and ...

Tuberculosis-like lesions (TBL) in pigs have been associated with microorganisms other than mycobacteria. In this work a histopathological and microbiological evaluation of TBL in pigs is shown. A total of 352 samples belonging to 171 pigs totally condemned at slaughterhouse due to generalized TBL were sampled and selected for analysis. Pyogranulomatous (56.2%) and granulomatous lesions (20.2%) were observed in all analysed organs. Most of the granulomas observed in both lymph nodes and lungs belonged to more advanced stages of development (stages III and IV) whereas in the liver and the spleen most of lesions belonged to intermediate stages (stages II and III). Different microorganisms were simultaneously detected from TBL in the 42.7% of the animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) (38%), coryneform bacteria (40.3%) and streptococci (28.1%) were the main groups of microorganisms detected after bacteriological analysis, with Trueperella pyogenes and Streptococcus suis as the most ...
Antibiotics are routinely given to livestock on factory farms to make them gain weight with less feed and keep them from getting sick in confinement conditions. But the daily dosing, at the same time it lowers feed needs, lowers drug effectiveness and produces antibiotic resistant bacteria or super bugs that can be deadly to people.. In January, researchers found 230 out of 395 pork cuts bought in US stores were contaminated with a super bug called MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Worse there were no statistically significant differences between conventionally raised swine and swine raised without antibiotics, reported the researchers.. Why would meat labeled raised without antibiotics be as full of super bugs as conventional and factory farmed meat?. It can be contaminated with MRSA at the farm, by slaughterhouse workers who carry MRSA or by other meat, if processing equipment is not cleaned out between runs of certified organic and non-certified organic meats, say the ...
Infectious disease - Infectious disease - Occupation and commerce: In occupational and commercial undertakings, people often manipulate their environment and, in so doing, expose themselves to infection. A farmer in his fields is exposed to damp conditions in which disease microorganisms flourish. While clearing out a ditch, he may be infected with leptospires passed into the water in rats urine. In his barns he may be exposed to brucellosis if his herd of cattle is infected or to salmonellosis or Q fever. Slaughterhouse workers run similar risks, as do veterinarians. A worker in a dock or tannery may get anthrax from imported hides; an upholsterer may get the disease

Progressive inflammatory neuropathy (PIN) is a disease that was identified in a report, released on January 31, 2008, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The first known outbreak of this neuropathy occurred in southeastern Minnesota in the United States. The disease was reported among pig slaughterhouse workers who appeared at various care facilities in the area reporting similar neurological symptoms. The disease was later identified at pork processing plants in Indiana and Nebraska as well. The condition is characterized by acute paralysis, pain, fatigue, numbness, and weakness, especially in extremities. It was initially believed that workers might have contracted the disease through inhaling aerosols from pig brains blown through a compressed-air hose and that this exposure to pig neural tissue induced an autoimmune response that might have produced their mysterious peripheral neuropathy. These suspicions were confirmed in reports and investigations conducted at the Mayo ...

24-7/ -- Its near midnight as a two-tier cattle truck climbs a hill 50 miles from Tulsa, OK, grinding and spitting from its lumbering load. The grueling 1,000 mile trek that began at a horse auction near Waukegon, Illinois is far from over, as the trucks destination is a Texas holding pen earmarked for slaughter-bound horses nearly 355 miles away. If the truck makes it across the state line, it will deliver nearly 50 horses----yearlings, pregnant mares, registered Thoroughbreds, purebred Arabians, wild Mustangs and ponies, Appaloosas, and newly born foals to a Mexican slaughter house. While these equines have individual stories and backgrounds, they share one commonality: They were all purchased at auction by what is known in the industry as kill buyers who are fulfilling independent contracts with the slaughter house. As many as 22 horses have already died en route due to kicking injuries, water and food deprivation, and suffocation since departing the auction nearly 72 hours earlier. This ...
Slaughter procedures vary among the domestic meat animal species due to anatomical differences in size and shape of animal and type of skin covering (i.e. hair, wool, feathers, etc.). Many of the basic procedures and objectives in sheep slaughter are similar to those of beef slaughter. In many small commercial sheep slaughter plants the animal is exsanguinated and most of the hide is removed with the carcass positioned on its back in a cradle on the floor. In the remainder of this presentation I will use words that may not be familiar to you. I suggest that before practicing this, you learn any unknown vocabulary.. The objectives of sheep slaughter include observing sanitary dressing procedures for sheep and learning anatomical location of the internal organs. These two things are very important and mandatory for the procedure.. Sheep Slaughter procedure. ...

[more ▼]. Escherichia coli producing the attachment-effacement (AE) lesion (EPEC) and/or Shiga toxins (STEC) cause enteritis and (bloody) diarrhoea in young calves and in humans, and are also present in the intestines of healthy cattle. Besides the O157:H7 serotype, which is the main serotype causing STEC outbreaks in the world EPEC and STEC can belong to dozens of O serogroups. Of them, 9 have been frequently identified worldwide: O5, O26, O103, O104, O111, O118, O121, O145 and O165. The aim of this study is to identify the virulotypes and the O serotypes of EPEC and STEC isolated from healthy cattle at slaughterhouses in Wallonia. A total of 245 faeces (216 ,1year-old bulls, 25 cows and 4 heifers) were sampled between April and June 2014 in 2 slaughterhouses in ...
This guidance is for England. Whether or not an owner is permitted to kill sheep for private consumption depends on whether the slaughter takes place outside or inside a licensed slaughterhouse.. There are two lawful ways to have your animals slaughtered and prepared for your own consumption: in an approved slaughterhouse, or on your farm by you for your own private consumption or that of immediate family living there.. On-farm slaughter of any livestock is an extremely difficult option to achieve legally in terms of food hygiene and TSE controls, and in terms of application of humane methods of restraint, stunning and slaughter. You need to ensure that you dispose of the carcase and any animal waste in accordance with the Regulations.. Slaughter outside a licensed slaughterhouse. EU Regulation (EC) 853/2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin states that in most cases meat for human consumption must be from animals slaughtered in an approved slaughterhouse (an approved ...

3. Environmental factors on farm, in transport, and during handling at the slaughter plant generally cause more variation in pork quality than genetics do. In fact, handling of animals before and during slaughter, and carcasses after slaughter account for approximately 60 to 70 percent of the variation in pork quality traits (De Vries et al., 1994).. 4. It is also not well known that beyond focusing on genetic improvement to achieve high pork quality, PIC also focuses on providing the critical technical support to help the industry control the environmental components of pork quality. These environmental components will be explained in our next Pig Improver. In providing this technical support, explains Brandon Fields, PIC Applied Meat Scientist, PIC is equipping the industry with the understanding of how to produce high-quality pork in a way that no other genetics company does.. 5. PIC is constantly driving innovation to help the industry ensure high pork quality. Significant milestones ...
EFSA's Task Force on Zoonoses Data Collection has published an analysis of the risk factors related to Salmonella in slaughter pigs within the European Union (EU).
Methods and Results: Nontarget bacterial cells were added to the sample prior to RNA extraction, facilitating the co-precipitation of target RNA along with nontarget RNA and thus enhancing the recovery. This method was developed using a serial dilution of log phase target cells (E. coli O157:H7), combined with a high number of nontarget cells (E. coli K12). Cells were lysed by a bead beating method followed by RNA purification using a commercial kit. A reverse-transcriptase PCR assay for the detection of rfbE gene in E. coli O157:H7 was used to demonstrate that the procedure increased the recovery of amplifiable RNA target with a detection limit of approximately 63 CFU ml−1 in cultures and 27·5 CFU ml−1 in carcass liquor ...
Preliminary studies showed the prevalence of a virus similar to human hepatitis B virus (HBV-like) in swine from farms in China and the molecular evidence of Hepadnavirus infection in domestic pigs herds in Brazil. In this study, we genetically characterize the swine Hepadnavirus strains in swine from slaughterhouses located in certified abattoirs from Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil and evaluate its hepatotropic potential. Bile and liver samples from swine were positive for partial genome amplification (ORF S and ORF C), direct sequencing and viral load quantification. Sequencing of the gene encoding the surface antigen allowed classification of Hepadnavirus into genotypes, similar to HBV genotype classification. Indirect immunofluorescence confirmed the presence of HBsAg antigen in liver tissue sections. So far our data suggest that commercial swine house an HBV-like virus and this relevant finding should be considered in studies on the origin and viral evolution.
Previous estimates put the figure at just five to ten percent, and Green Party MEP Carl Schlyter says he is shocked at the numbers. Many of the animals are first drained of their blood before dying, and a growing share of the 75 percent are made up of animals killed according to the rules for kosher and halal meat, but Schlyter says much is also due to cost-cutting measures at slaughterhouses ...
powerful anti-horse-slaughter lobby, and enacts an outright prohibition of horse slaughter.. Unintended Consequences of the Closure of the U.S. Plants. To generally summarize this June 2011 Government Accountability Office report, the horse market tanked after the closure of the U.S. horse slaughter plants in 2007. The GAO gave multiple reasons for the decline-including the drought and the economy, but the cessation of domestic slaughter was clearly indicated as a factor in the report. Veterinarians surveyed by the GAO reported that horse welfare declined across the board, with a 50% or greater increase in abandonment and neglect cases in some states. The nationwide capacity of horse rescue facilities is about 6,000 head of horses, and the vast majority of these are already full. Legislative prohibitions on using federal funds for inspecting horses prior to slaughter impede USDAs and APHISs ability to oversee the transport and welfare of U.S. horses intended for slaughter. The number of horses ...

The Paris March gathered between 400 to 500 people. The March originated at the old Vaugirard slaughterhouses to pay homage to the animals who died at the abattoirs, the very same site where Franju filmed a part of his documentary Le sang des betes. Thereafter, the protesters returned to the Place Saint-Michel by passing through the streets of Vaugirard, de Rennes, and the boulevard St Germain.
Streptococcus suis is an important pathogen in the swine industry. This article is the first to report the occurrence, risk factors, serotype distribution, and antimicrobial susceptibility of S. suis recovered from employees and environmental samples of swine slaughterhouses in Brazil. Tonsillar swabs from all 139 pig-slaughtering employees and 261 environmental swabs were collected for detection of S. suis and serotyping by monoplex and multiplex polymerase chain reaction, respectively. Antimicrobial susceptibility was determined by the disk-diffusion method. Although S. suis was not detected in any of the tested employees, it was isolated from 25% of the environmental samples. Significant differences (P , 0.05) in the occurrence of S. suis were observed between slaughterhouses and between areas of low, medium, and high risk. The most frequent serotypes were 4 and 29, each accounting for 12% of the isolates, followed by 5, 12, 21, and 31, each accounting for 6%. High rates of susceptibility to ...
To more fully characterize the burden of Salmonella enterica in bovine peripheral lymph nodes (PLN), PLN (n=5,450) were collected from healthy cattle at slaughter in 12 commercial abattoirs that slaughtered feedlot-fattened (FF) cattle exclusively (n=7), cattle removed (or culled) from breeding herds (n=3), or both FF and cull cattle (n=2). Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to estimate prevalence and concentration of Salmonella in PLN. Isolates were subjected to a variety of phenotypic, serological, and molecular assays. Overall, Salmonella prevalence in PLN from FF and cull cattle was 7.1% and 1.8%. However, burden varied by season in that observed prevalence in PLN collected in cooler or warmer seasons was 2.4% and 8.2%, respectively. Prevalence in PLN from cull cattle in the southwest region of the US was 2.1% and 1.1% for cool and warm seasons, respectively; however, prevalence in FF PLN was far greater in that it was 6.5% and 31.1%, respectively. Salmonella was recovered from 289 (5.6%
UK - Beef cattle numbers are falling week on week but are steady year on year in Northern Ireland as plants quote steady prices, say analysts at the Livestock and Meat Commission.
In terms of vulnerability, contemporary slaves are often tricked into work situations where they find themselves powerless to escape. The fate of many immigrant slaughterhouse workers is similar. An increasing number of workers in the meat industry are immigrants and they are usually unaware of their workplace rights. In addition, as many immigrant workers or their family members are undocumented, they are afraid to assert their rights or make complaints to government authorities. The meatpacking companies hire immigrant workers because they are often the only ones who will work under such terrible conditions, says Jamie Fellner, Director of the U.S. program at Human Rights Watch. And they exploit the illegal status of undocumented workers to keep them quiet. In other words, speak up and you will lose your livelihood ...
The research covered three slaughterhouses in Nairobi and Eldoret. The objectives were to assess the prevalence of E. coli O157 serotype contaminated carcasses at dispatch, the possible cross-contamination during transportation, and knowledge, attitude and handling practices that led to increased contamination or bacterial growth. Randomly selected 250 beef carcasses were sampled. Swab samples from a single carcass were obtained from three sites during loading and offloading of meat to carriers. A total of 1500 samples were obtained. E. coli O157 serotype was isolated, and purified using sorbital MacConkey, MacConkey and nutrient agar. Serotyping was by card agglutination test. Oxoid verotoxin test kit was used to test for verotoxin (VT1 and VT2) production. Carrier environment was monitored. Knowledge, attitude and practices of meat transporters were assessed through a semi structured questionnaire and observations. Probability of contamination was modeled and run through Monte Carlo simulation ...
Neutral fat hydrolysis and long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) oxidation rates were determined during the digestion of slaughterhouse wastewater in anaerobic sequencing batch reactors operated at 25 degrees C. The experimental substrate consisted of filtered slaughterhouse wastewater supplemented with pork fat particles at various average initial sizes (D(in)) ranging from 60 to 450 microm. At the D(in) tested, there was no significant particle size effect on the first-order hydrolysis rate. The neutral fat hydrolysis rate averaged 0.63 +/- 0.07 d(-1). LCFA oxidation rate was modelled using a Monod-type equation. The maximum substrate utilization rate (kmax) and the half-saturation concentration (Ks) averaged 164 +/- 37 mg LCFA/L/d and 35 +/- 31 mg LCFA/L, respectively. Pork fat particle degradation was mainly controlled by LCFA oxidation rate and, to a lesser extent, by neutral fat hydrolysis rate. Hydrolysis pretreatment of fat-containing wastewaters and sludges should not substantially accelerate their
Upon arrival to the slaughter house, the horses are unloaded into waiting pens. At this point, some horses may be dead upon arrival from the transportation or too severely injured to even get off of the trailers. In my opinion, the most horrific aspect of these poorly developed slaughter houses follows the transportation. From the waiting pens, the stressed horses are ushered through chutes- the final stage of their journey. They are then paralyzed by a captive bolt gun. In the article, The Slaughter Process: Walking the Halls of Horror, the captive bolt gun and the killing process is further described as a device powered by compressed air that drives at high speed a steel bolt to the target, theoretically causing brain damage resulting in loss of consciousness. It does not kill, actual death is caused by exsanguination (loss of blood) caused by throat slitting. The captive bolt gun does not work well with the horse; the animals are not restrained (causing the target to be missed) and ...
After testing for Salmonella and E. coli on a variety of beef carcasses at slaughter plants, federal food safety authorities are saying that slaughter
Staphylococcus aureus is an important opportunistic pathogen of humans and animals and a leading global cause of foodborne disease (1). Poultry as a potential reservoir for the zoonotic transmission of drug-resistant S. aureus to humans has been well documented (2). Despite the apparent threat, the genomics of antibiotic-resistant S. aureus in food animals appear to be neglected in Africa (3, 4). Toward this end, S. aureus SA9, isolated from a slaughterhouse chicken carcass in South Africa, was subjected to whole-genome sequencing (WGS). Antimicrobial susceptibility testing utilizing the broth microdilution method revealed its multidrug-resistant profile.. Strain SA9 was isolated and confirmed using HiCrome Aureus agar base (HiMedia Laboratories, Mumbai, India) and an API Staph kit (bioMérieux, Marcy-lEtoile, France), respectively. It was streaked onto Mueller-Hinton agar (MHA) plates and incubated at 37°C for 24 h. Following incubation, genomic DNA was extracted from 1 CFU of a visibly pure ...
Global fetal bovine serum market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR in the upcoming period as the scope and its applications are rising enormously across the globe. Fetal bovine serum (FBS) is a media supplement used for cell culture and is derived from whole blood obtained from usual bovine fetuses collected from healthy cows at slaughterhouses. It is a byproduct of meat processing industries. The key component of FBS is bovine serum albumin. The factors that are playing a major role in the growth of fetal bovine serum market are the growing demand from end-users and is easy for regulatory approvals. However, ethical issues during blood collection method and the environmental conditions may restrain the overall market in the years to come. The market is segmented based on application, end user, and region. The market may be categorized based on applications like diagnostics, drug discovery, human and animal vaccine production, cell culture media, in vitro fertilization, and others that ...

The first mention I have of my great-great-grandfather Daniel Miller Coupers occupation is on his marriage certificate in January of 1879. By then 28 years old, he was a butcher. Whether he already had his own business by then or was working for another butcher, I dont know. From that time his occupation is uniformly given as butcher in all the documents I have viewed - up until the time it changes to retired butcher! Becoming a butcher I have not dwelled on the physical skills needed to become a butcher - I am too squeamish for that and it is certainly not an occupation that would suit me! I had always assumed that Daniel Miller Couper must have gone through an apprenticeship. Perhaps he did as there was an apprenticeship system in place in Victoria, modelled after the English system. However, in researching for this post Im not so sure. The requirements for a slaughtering licence outside of Melbourne were quite straightforward - a slaughtering licence could be had for one pound if the local ...

Stella would have been dead by Christmas. In late December, a slaughterhouse owner bought her and several other spent dairy goats at a stockyard. Like all female goats in dairy production, they had lived their short lives in a cycle of impregnation, birth and lactation. Their babies were taken from them immediately after birth, the girls to be raised as replacements, the boys to be auctioned for meat or disposed of by some other fatal means. After a few years of this, the dairy goats bodies were worn out, and their milk production declined. It was then their turn to face the auction and the kill floor. It was a normal day at the slaughterhouse until Stella went into labor.. Unaware that one of his purchases was pregnant, the facility owner was taken by surprise. And then he was taken by another emotion. Seeing the tender devotion between the mother and her newborn kid, he decided to let them live. Stella and her newborn baby were spared. The slaughterhouse owner reached out to a relative who ...
ABSTRACT During the last years, Brazilian government control programs have detected an increase of Salmonella Heidelberg in poultry slaughterhouses a condition that poses a threat to human health However, the reasons remain unclear. Differences in genetic virulence profiles may be a possible justification. In addition, effective control of Salmonella is related to an efficient epidemiological surveillance system through genotyping techniques. In this context, the aim of this study was the detection of 24 virulence-associated genes in 126 S. Heidelberg isolates. We classified the isolates into 56 different genetic profiles. None of the isolates presented all the virulence genes. The prevalence of these genes was high in all tested samples as the lowest number of genes detected in one isolate was 10/24. The lpfA and csgA (fimbriae), invA and sivH (TTSS), and msgA and tolC (intracellular survival) genes were present in 100% of the isolates analyzed. Genes encoding effector proteins were detected in ...

My blessed friend, I am very happy to see the change of the vibratory action of your thoughts right now. The mighty stream of Divine consciousness has purified and removed the old records of destructive thinking from your world. My angels of illumination are placing a cosmic ring of golden fire around you now to protect the precious energy of Divine Wisdom and Illumination in your pulsating energy field. But you need to know that this circle of protection can easily be broken by the human habit of criticism, judgment and condemnation. Stand guard, my dear friend, and keep these destructieve energies of envy, condemnation, resentment and judgment including self judgment and self condemnation outside the golden circle of Wisdoms ray. Let no one provoke you and tempt you to enter in the interchange of energies based on criticism, envy, revenge, judgment and condemnation. This is the greatest poison that you can ever drink, my child. Stay away from people who are addicted to the continual ...
A recent discussion among a couple members of the studio audience touched briefly on the question of what it takes for something to count as punishment.. Specifically, it touched on the question of whether taxation can be properly classified as punishment.. The discussion merely grazed the surface of this question, then ricocheted off. However, I have heard the statement a number of times - particularly by libertarians (a tribe in which I was once a member).. Furthermore, this is a blog that suggests that the institution of morality is (or should be) the application of praise, condemnation, reward, and punishment to promote good desires and inhibit bad desires. It would be useful to say a few things about what punishment is.. Punishment involves intentionally doing harm to somebody. In other words, the act of punishment seeks to create a state of affairs in which the desires of others (those who are being punished) are deliberately thwarted. The thwarting of the desires of others is not a ...
Since March 2018 Meatco has managed to pay producers well above the South African parity price across all grades, excluding fat equalisation and weight premiums. The corporation said that it is aware that the ratio between slaughter and weaner prices is not favourable towards the slaughter of ox production system.. Meatco said that taking into account the current downward trend of weaner prices together with the improvement in Meatcos slaughter prices, farmers should once again be motivated to move into slaughter cattle production.. Despite the present strenuous environment where the factory is running at 45% capacity, Meatco is still paying competitive prices to its producers on an international level.. Livestock Procurement Executive at Meatco, Heiner Böhme stressed that cattle delivered to Meatco directly from the farmer remain the preferred supply channel.. Meatco acknowledges that the 2017 slaughter prices paid below parity resulted, amongst others, in a record number of animals exported ...
The nothing beats human ingenuity applies as much to the doctor who closely aligned with her conclusions and who didnt have to do his own research. What you are suggesting is that your mother doesnt have to rely upon doctors for a diagnosis of any current and future medical conditions as they arise. All she has to do is to carry out her own research into her symptoms, by-pass the doctor and go straight to the nearest pharmacy or hospital. And applying this principle universally, there is no need for doctors other than surgeons, although these could be replaced by internet-savvy butchers, abattoir workers and seamstresses who have access to Youtube, etc. In other words, in the context of an extension of the elderly patient analogy, access to collective expertise doesnt work in solving problems unless the ones accessing the information can comprehend and apply it.

Everybody is up in arms, Coon said. The sad part is-or maybe its good for him- there is not a law that says you cant slaughter your livestock for consumption. And he is a horse eater. No one answered a telephone listing for Sappington in Dexter on Friday. De Los Santos said Sappington actually filmed the entire process for preparing the horse for consumption. But he only posted part of the video. Carolyn Schnurr, federal legislative manager of government relations for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, called the video emotionally disturbing. But she said the group does not condone violence, and reminded others opposed to horse slaughter to stay focused on what needs to be done to help American horses … to end the slaughter of American horses. Horse slaughter opponents are pushing legislation in Congress to ban domestic slaughter, as well as the export of horses to other countries for slaughter. The debate is raging amid a recent uproar in Europe over horse ...

All this is shown in between shots of the band playing in a slaughterhouse ...

Throughout the years, Eyes on Animals inspectors have visited many slaughterhouses. We see many - major and minor - differences in the equipment used, as well as the handling of the animals.

NEW YORK-Several prominent New Jersey horse owners and advocates, including accomplished equestrian Jessica Springsteen, daughter of musician Bruce Springsteen, have joined the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) in supporting a state ban on the slaughter, transport, and sale of horses for human consumption by submitting a letter to Gov. Chris Christie urging him to sign this critical legislation into law. Introduced by Assemblyman Ronald Dancer (R-Cream Ridge) and Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak (D-Union), A.2023/S.1976 would ban the in-state slaughter of horses, the transport of horses to slaughter, and the sale of horse meat for human consumption. The legislation overwhelmingly passed in both the state Senate and Assembly and was sent to Gov. Christie for his signature in July. The letter, signed by several well-known horse owners, advocates and equestrians from across the state, including ASPCA Equine Welfare Ambassadors and top international riders Jessica ...
