Can an importing country justify on purely scientific grounds a zero-tolerance policy for Salmonella on raw poultry? The term “zero tolerance” for specific pathogens such as Salmonella in raw food products is interpreted differently in different countries and therefore has been confusing, misleading and misapplied. Using terms such as “zero tolerance” or “absence of a bacterium” in relation to raw poultry should be avoided unless these terms are specifically defined and explained by international agreement.
El principal suministro de energía para el embrión aviar en desarrollo es la yema, que contiene carbohidratos, lípidos y proteínas, de los cuales son los lípidos la fuente más importante de energía para dicho organismo. Las yemas de huevo no absorbidas y su contenido bacteriológico pueden tener un importante impacto sobre la inocuidad alimentaria en pollos de engorda.
The main energy supply for the developing avian embryo is yolk, which contains carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, with lipids providing the most important source of energy to the embryo. Near the end of the incubation period, the yolk sac is internalized into the abdominal cavity and at the time of hatch, the remaining yolk comprises approximately 20% of the chick’s body weight and continues to provide immediate posthatch energy, protein and water for nourishment.
