Anti-bacterial activity in the gizzard
Salmonella enterica is widely present and is a threat to humans. Poultry can become infected with Salmonella via horizontal or vertical transmission, so the traditional approach of focusing on only environmental contamination is not effective. To keep poultry Salmonella free—even when the bacteria might be present in the environment—poultry need to be made less sensitive to Salmonella infection. As the main route of infection is the gastrointestinal tract, killing the pathogenic bacteria as soon as it enters the gastrointestinal tract is effective.
