|Title:||Influence of egg shell translucency on egg shell penetration by bacteria||Contributor(s):||Chousalkar, Kapil (author); Flynn, Pamela (author); Sutherland, Megan M (author); Cheetham, Brian F (author); Roberts, Juliet R (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11152||Abstract:||Egg shell translucency, which can be due to changes in the mammillary cores and mamillary layer during the early phases of eggshell formation, has the potential to increase the incidence of microcracks in egg shells, and hence, may facilitate bacterial penetration. There was a significant correlation between egg shell translucency and egg shell penetration by 'Salmonella' Infantis. 'Salmonella' Infantis was able to penetrate translucent egg shells even at very low doses. The penetration, however, appeared to be hindered in both translucent and non-translucent eggs at 4°C, as compared with room temperature which highlights the importance of storage of eggs at refrigeration temperatures.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||22nd Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium: Tangible Solutions from Innovative Poultry Science, Sydney, Australia, 14th - 16th February, 2011||Conference Details:||22nd Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium: Tangible Solutions from Innovative Poultry Science, Sydney, Australia, 14th - 16th February, 2011||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, p. 234-237||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070205 Animal Protection (Pests and Pathogens)||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830501 Eggs||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/documents/2011/APSS2011.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||22||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 241
