A meeting of experts was convened to review the scientific background for the Codex draft Guidelines for Salmonella and Campylobacter in chicken meat. For comparison, the experts used their own expertise and data received in advance of the meeting in response to an FAO/WHO call for data and information. The main topic of the meeting was the broiler production chain. In particular, the efficacy of possible interventions on farm and during processing and preparation received close attention.

This volume and others in the Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain information that is useful to risk managers such as the Codex Alimentarius, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food producers and industries, and other people or institutions working in the area of microbiological hazards in foods, their impact on human health and food trade, and their control.
