Abstract To enhance efforts related to controlling foodborne pathogens in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), information on epidemiology of non‐typhoidal Salmonella enterica (hereafter termed “Salmonella”) is limited. We quantified the overall regional and country‐specific Salmonella prevalence in different human populations and identified the most common serotypes. Published literature of...

Abstract In this research, effects of chitosan coating of brown trout (Salmo trutta fario) fillets containing inulin were determined. Chitosan enriched by vegetable oils (0% Chitosan‐control, 2% acetic acid +Chitosan, 2% sage oil+Chitosan, and 2% mint oil+Chitosan) on shelf life was investigated. In the experiment, fish fillets from the control and the experimental groups were subjected to...

Abstract Salmonella enterica is a common food‐borne pathogen with occasional multidrug resistance (MDR). Salmonella genomic island (SGI1) is a horizontally transmissible genomic island, containing an MDR gene cluster. All Salmonella serotypes are public health concern, although there is an additional concern associated with those that harbour SGI1. In Iran, there are no data on the presence of...
