Abstract

Yersinia enterocolitica is responsible for a foodborne disease characterized by acute enterocolitis. The pig is the most important reservoir of the microorganism and indeed human pathogenic strains. From January 2005 to November 2005, a total of 98 pigs were randomly selected in a slaughterhouse in the province of Parma, Northern Italy. Typing of the isolates demonstrated that cattle were infected by Y. enterocolitica biotype 3 (O:9). None of the Y. enterocolitica isolates was positive for the YadA gene.
