Increased testing for Salmonella Enteritidis is being conducted in poultry farms after the bacterium was detected at an Auckland supplier, RNZ reports. The heightened tests were a precautionary measure, as there has also been an increase in human cases caused by the same strain of salmonella, according to the Ministry of Primary Industries. MPI also reminded people of the three C’s for food safety at home: Clean food preparation surfaces, Cook raw chicken to an internal temperature of 75°C, and Chill cooked chicken in the fridge.
