Salmonella control in feed

I have just finished reading a comprehensive review on practical control measures against Salmonella in animal feed. This review, by Jones (2011, Journal of Applied Poultry Research, 20:102-113), clearly indicates that thermal treatment (usually pelleting) alone is not enough to eliminate Salmonella.

Additions of chemical products (such as certain organic acids and/or formaldehyde) are also recommended in combination or alone. Other measures are also proposed to (a) reduce the chances of Salmonella entering the feed plant, and (b) once unavoidably there, ways to reduce its multiplication rate.
 
I am sure this review will be of much interest not only to nutritionists, but also to feed plant managers!

    I heard there's one company, I think it is a korean company, they have this bacteriophage that is against ST, SE, SP and SG. Would this bacteriophage help?

    The compound feed manufacturing standard plus the integrated farm assurance standard of GLOBALG.A.P. do integrate very intensively the requirements for monitoring and control of salmonella in feed and livestock production. See www.globalgap.org -> standards; with the support of scientifically validated and approved methods as provided by the industry the fight against Salmonella and its control shall be improved.
