Two agencies in the Netherlands have looked at the prevalence of selected pathogens in chickens for meat production.

The study reaffirmed Campylobacter, Salmonella and extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing bacteria on broiler farms can be transmitted to humans through meat consumption and direct or indirect contact.

In 2018 and 2019 the National
