Can you kill salmonella in the freezer?

No, you cannot kill Salmonella in the freezer because once the temperature starts to reach 40 deg F the bacteria will hybernate (become spores) to preserve itself. The only way to kill Salmonella is to cook at a minimum of 150 deg F. Placing your food in the freezer will only slow down it's growth. the guy who wrote this is stupid.. you can! I've done it!

How does an egg get salmonella contamination?

The main type of Salmonella that infects eggs is Salmonella Enteritidis, sometimes abbreviated as SE. Eggs can become contaminated in two ways:

  1. Surface contamination of the outside of the shell. Salmonella in the environment can get on the shell. The Salmonella can get then get in your egg when you crack the shell. But also, the shell of an egg gets more permeable (small holes open up that you can't see) over time, so the Salmonella bacteria can get inside. This was once thought to be the main way Salmonella gets into eggs, but now scientist believe the main way is the second method (see #2).
  2. Hens can become infected with Salmonella Enteritidis through contaminated feed. This Salmonella can get into the hens ovaries and the Salmonella gets inside the egg as it is forming inside the hen, before it is even laid. Furthermore, the Salmonella stays in the hens ovaries and can infect most or all of the eggs she lays in her lifetime.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a new regulation to help make eggs safer to eat. The regulation seeks to reduce the number of illnesses caused by eggs contaminated with the bacterium Salmonella Enteritidis (SE). The regulation requires the egg industry to take specific preventive measures to keep eggs safe during their production, storage and transport. Egg producers will also be required to register with FDA and to maintain a prevention plan and records to show they are following the regulation.

What is salmonella typhi H and salmonella typhi O?

salmonella typhi H is a typhoid count. it is very dangerous. in typhi H it tells us that the count of the disease will decrease very slowly and it will take years time to decrease but in typhi O it tells us that the count will decrease in a short period of time such as in 1 or 2 weeks. the count 1/80 tells we are at a minimum level. that means we have typhoid tYphi O,but if its above the count it is very bad. if you have temprature or shiviring and vomitting you should immediatly go to the doctor for a blood test to ensure safety. remember one thing if you have typhoid you should take a diet.do not eat anything solid only take liquids.such as soups. i have also got typhoid and this is what he doctor said to me and i had typhi O.and in typhoid you should take rest for at least a week.

How to detect salmonella in foods?

You can't really do it by yourself; salmonella does not have obvious indicators like taste, color or smell. You'd basically need to send it out to a lab to have them test it. Of course, the painful way to detect it is after ingesting: stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, fever and chills, all of which can be cured with antibiotics if caught in time. If not, you could die -- so get to a hospital if you think you've got it, and play it safe by throwing away or fully cooking risky foods, which kills it.

Are eggs safe to eat one day after the buy by date?

One day after and you should be ok, but I wouldn't suggest you do it, as you are still taking a slight risk-eggs are the most dangerous dairy food if eaten after the date stated on the front of their label, as over time you then have the risk of catching salmonella poisoning. The UK government Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the most cautious, due to the potential risk of salmonella in some eggs (salmonella in eggs can occur naturally), they state that although with other dairy products you can use the standard taste tests to see if its still edible, but you should never eat any eggs after this "best before" date at all. I would advise you to do the same!

Read here:

http://www.eatwell.gov.UK/foodlabels/labellingterms/bestbefore/

The date on most dairy products is not when the food goes mysteriously completely bad and is unsafe to eat, it is the date that stores can no longer sell them, as according to them its no longer considered "fresh" or at the height of its taste. With all dairy products (milk/eggs/cheese etc) we are advised to treat these dates like a "use by" (usually shown on non-dairy products), and should be eaten before whats stated on the front. I would be cautious with all dairy products-you may not notice any taste difference eating dairy the day after the "use by" date, but the level of bacteria growth in most dairy foods (especially in milk or similar products after opening) does increase rapidly over a couple of days, so you can end up feeling sick if you drunk too much milk that had gone off!

With eggs, its the possibility of an egg having a high level of salmonella that's the risk over time, not how fresh it still is. Confusingly, with most other egg safety websites, eggs kept in the fridge they should be ok up to roughly 3 weeks after purchase, but we can never be completely clear as to when any purchased eggs were received by the supermarket to sell - so that makes it difficult for the customer to decide how long they can be kept for. Some US websites even state you can keep an egg from its date of "birth" 5 weeks afterwards. Interestingly, some websites state that the safest eggs may well be those that are NOT organic, as the organic ones may not have been injected with much needed anti-bacterial chemicals in order to last longer (and possibly even reduce the amount of salmonella found in 1 or more out of 100 eggs).

The bottom line is to always cook your eggs thoroughly and store them in a cold part of your fridge (ie not the side of the door), and never attempt to cook/eat an egg with a cracked shell, no matter how small. I usually bin eggs straight after the best before date just to be extra cautious, but the general rule is still if you are not sure, simply bin it. If I had a family to cook for, I would be extra wary-you don't want anyone to catch anything, do you? Crack the shell, if the egg or its yolk acts, looks or smells bad, don't even attempt to eat it! To avoid the higher risks of poisoning from any salmonella that may be present, simply try not to eat any eggs after this date at all.

What is Salmonella?

Salmonella is a type of bacteria that can be found in raw meats, poultry, and some other types of produce. This bacteria can cause a lot of different types of illness from an upset stomach to food poisoning and may be fatal. A type of Salmonella can also cause typhoid fever. Salmonella is a rod-shaped, non-spore producing bacteria. Through a powerful microscope, they appear as reddish-colored rods after Gram staining , and can be in different sized groups. You cannot see Salmonella without the aid of a microscope. Salmonella can occur in poultry that is improperly thawed, in kitchens and on kitchen equipment that is not properly cleaned, in standing water, passed from people who are sick with it, and can be contracted by handling pet lizards, turtles, snakes, and other amphibians--especially aquatic types.Salmonialis is common disease caused by it which is usually called food poisioning .
