An investigation of poultry litter intended for use in farm feeds showed that 0,37 %, 0,49 %, 0,25 %and
12,3 % of the 813 samples tested were contaminated with Clostridium spp., haemolytic Escherichia coli,
Staphylococcus aureus and 21 different species of Salmonella. The findings clearly underline the hygienically
dangerous nature of crude poultry litter. The practical implications of the results are briefly discussed, particularly
in view of current regulations.
