Salmonella is considered a major pathogen in Public Health. Córdoba is an important region for the production of pork. In this study we estimated the prevalence and risk factors associated with Salmonella at different stages of pig production chain (farms, slaughterhouses and pork sausages industries). The observed prevalence of farms in this study was higher than reported by EU. The main Risk Factors could be linked to the lack of good manufacturing practices in the whole pork chain in the region.
