E-mail: ssa_vane@yahoo.com.br The objective of this study was to investigate Salmonella spp. at 240 broiler carcasses before entrance in chilling tank (n = 120) and at the output of chilling tanks (n = 120) at poultry processing plant under Sanitary Inspection, Minas Gerais. Salmonella spp. was isolated from 9.58% (23/240) of the samples, in which 15.83% (19/120) were collected before pre-chiller and 3.33% (4/120) after chilling. There was a significant reduction (p<0.05) of 78.95% of Salmonella spp. the carcasses studied after chilling. Odds Ratio was 5.45 (CI = 1.80 to 16.57), which indicates that the chance of bacteria to be present on carcasses before chilling was 5.45 times higher than that after this process. The main serotypes identified were Salmonella anatum (39.13%) and Salmonella schwarzengrund (26.09%) which underscores the emergence of these serotypes in poultry products.
