Salmonella seems to be in the news quite a bit these days. There are more than 2,000 different varieties.
At Midwest Laboratories our Microbiology Department analyzes samples for salmonella everyday, 7 days a week from different companies. 380 million eggs were recalled this week for Salmonella from one company. Midwest Laboratories uses the PCR Detection and FDA Bacteriological Analytical Manual Methods for Salmonella Analysis.
