Abstract

The organic meat sector is currently the fastest growing segment of the US organic food industry, with poultry accounting for nearly two-thirds of this sector. In addition, the popularity for other alternatively raised poultry, such as pasture raised, has grown. However, little is known about the prevalence and characteristics of food-borne pathogens in nonconventionally produced poultry products. This chapter gives an overview of the studies on prevalence of food-borne pathogens and antibiotic resistance in pastured and organically raised poultry.
