Salmonella serotype Enteritidis (S. Enteritidis) is one of the most common serotypes of Salmonella bacteria reported worldwide. In most cases, the birds are not sick and the production is not affected. The degree of illness depends on factors of both the bacteria and the host. S. Enteritidis is primarily of importance for public health (may cause illness in man). Salmonella in humans is from an international perspective often linked to the consumption of eggs, meat or meat products from poultry.
