Abstract:

A total of 500 samples, comprising 150 poultry meat, 150 intestinal (caeca), 50 water, 50 equipment swab and 50 workers’ hand swabs from retail poultry meat outlets and 50 diarrhoeic stool samples from children under-5 years of age from children hospitals in Junagadh city were screened. The samples were subjected to isolation followed by confirmation using a multiplex PCR assay. Out of samples processed, highest isolation rate was observed in poultry intestinal contents (38.67% each), followed by poultry meat (16%), equipment swab (10%), worker hand washing swab (6%), human stools (4%) and none of the isolate present in water samples. A total of 92 campylobacters (18.4%) were isolated comprising 64 C. coli (12.8%) and 28 C. jejuni (5.6%). It may be concluded from the present study that Campylobacter spp. is highly prevalent in poultry, human and environment in Junagadh district of Gujarat region. The occurrence Campylobacter spp. in poultry intestinal contents, equipment swab and worker hands washing swab samples which indicate contamination of carcass may take place during slaughtering and/or post slaughtering processes. The findings on isolation of Campylobacter spp. from clinical cases of children further prove the importance of infection that necessitates the need for proper preventive measures to control the infection in food production and consumption.
