The National Service for Health and Quality of Agriculture (Senasa) warned the population against consumption chickens and eggs from the official establishment 3821 “Avícola Plottier”, because despite being closed as a precaution, it distributed a batch of chickens whose analyzes were positive for Salmonella sp.

For this reason, the experts of the health organization perform the tasks of health supervision of poultry slaughtering and egg grading.
On that occasion, a batch of 243 boxes of chicken was seized, the samples of which were sent to the Laboratory and tested positive for Salmonella sp.
