Application Note: New EN ISO 6579-1 for Salmonella Detection in the food chain
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) publishes the EN ISO 6579-1 standard, which specifies a horizontal method for the detection of Salmonella spp. in the food production chain.
Like the preceding ISO 6579:2002+Amd 1:2007, the new EN ISO 6579-1 covers the testing of products intended for human consumption, animal feeding and environmental samples in food production and handling.
In addition, EN ISO 6579-1 now includes testing of milk and milk products as well as samples from the primary production stage, such as animal feces, dust and boot socks.
