This study is necesary for preveting feedind the hens with feed that is contaminated with bacteria from the Salmonella genus to prevent the transmission of diseases caused by this kind of bacteria and to monitor the microbiological quality of the rations in order to improve food safety. Due to Salmonella implications in importat economical losses and their implications in human health by triggering food poisoning from eating contaminated products makes this one of the most pressing issues in veterinary medicine. There are infectious diseases caused by pathogens of the genus Salmonella. They are universal spread and specific zoonoses, some strains are ubiquitous, and others with regional character. In terms of food poisoning caused by Salmonella we can say that, in terms of frequency and sanitary implications, they occupy an important place in most countries of the European Community. The possibility of human infection is constantly growing in the context of the circulation of contaminated food. The disease can be triggered by eating powdered products with an increased shelf life. Microorganisms are present in feed, soil and surface water. In birds that carry it, the bacteria are located in the digestive tract, gall bladder, ovary and they can eliminate it in the environment all lifelong. Specific serotypes are represented by S. enteridis and S. typhimurium. Venue of the study was the unit S.C. Avicola Găești S.R.L. Measurements were taken on samples of feed and fodder, harvested amount is 1kg / sample, the sample is then divided into 5 units of equal mass. The method of investigation used was the Horizontal method for the detection of Salmonella spp. - SR EN ISO 6579:2003 / AC 2009, a method that is RENAR approved. At the end, measurements found no pathogens in samples of feed and fodder (Absent / 25 g). Using this method, it proved one of the most important aspects, that of the desire to obtain safe and quality products coming from the poultry sector.
