Researchers from the Singapore Food Agency’s National Center for Food Science and the National University of Singapore have developed a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) approach for the detection of viable Salmonella Enteritidis contamination in shell eggs, which would accelerate the traditional Salmonella testing process if integrated.
Last year marked the beginning of the worst avian influenza outbreak to date, and the U.S. is still experiencing the chaos of this virus. Egg farmers, with the help of industry partners, have continued to develop and enhance biosecurity and safety measures that work to reduce the spread of the virus and maintain proper bird health.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA’s FSIS) has published an article, “Temporal Changes in the Proportion of Salmonella Outbreaks Associated with Twelve Broad Commodity Classes in the United States.”
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA’s FSIS) has released a generic Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) model for raw, non-intact egg products that is consistent with FSIS’ amendments to egg product inspection regulations.
The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has released a revised self-reporting tool (SRT) that determines the foreign equivalence eligibility of nations exporting meat, poultry, and egg products to the U.S.
