Microbiological evolution was monitored by flow slaughter realizing qualitative and quantitative determinations for: Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria spp., Yersinia enterocolitica. The results obtained allow the assessment of the achievement of hygienic and technological conditions for obtaining microbiological level classification of carcasses with the legal standards.
