European Union - EFSA: Technical specifications for harmonised national surveys on Yersinia enterocolitica in slaughter pigs

Based on the opinion from the scientific panel on Biological Hazards on the monitoring and identification of human enteropathogenic Yersinia spp. (EFSA, 2007c), the Task Force on Zoonoses Data Collection was asked by the European Food Safety Authority to draft harmonised technical specifications to be used for national surveys for the monitoring and reporting of Yersinia enterocolitica in pig populations under the Directive 2003/99/EC (EC, 2003).

Based on the opinion from the scientific panel on Biological Hazards on the monitoring and identification of human enteropathogenic Yersinia spp. (EFSA, 2007c), the Task Force on Zoonoses Data Collection was asked by the European Food Safety Authority to draft harmonised technical specifications to be used for national surveys for the monitoring and reporting of Yersinia enterocolitica in pig populations under the Directive 2003/99/EC (EC, 2003).

According to public health relevance, the proposal focuses primarily on the estimation of the prevalence of human pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica types, identified by biotype, which represents the best and most reliable indicator of Yersinia enterocolitica pathogenicity.

The proposed technical specifications define slaughter pigs as the target population, including animals between 50 kg and 170 kg live weight and originating from all rearing systems.
