Abstract

An overview of microbial risk assessment (MRA) and its application in the poultry production and processing are presented. An outline of the general methodology of MRA which includes scoping the problem, key components and alternative approaches, is also presented. Examples of poultry MRAs are given; they focus on Campylobacter and Salmonella which are the main organisms for which MRAs have been developed.
