This study aimed to analyse the influence of refrigeration on Salmonella.Two register strains have been used – S. Enteritidis (D) (ATCC 13076) and S. Typhimurium (ATCC14028), each having a known load of 28*107, respectively 40*107. The two strains have been subjected to temperature variations as such: 1.-18°C for 1 h 45 min; 2. 2-4°C for 6 h after the first stage; 3. 2°C for 10 h after the second stage.The collected samples have been analyzed according to ISO 6579:2002. The results have shown that after quick refrigeration (-18°C for 1 h 45 min), the S. enteritidis and S. typhimurium microorganisms at the load of 22 log ufc/cm2, respectively 44 log ufc/cm2 could not be noticed. The other two variations (2-4°C for 6 h and 2°C for 10 h) did not have any effect on the two Salmonella strains, no matter the UFC number used. We can affirm that the temperature of-18°C prevent the multiplication of microorganisms only if the microbial load is reduced, and once with increasing temperature the microorganisms have been highlighted.
