Abstract

During a 10-year study, Salmonella spp. were isolated from 18 of 411 (4.4%) wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo) examined in Florida, including five juvenile birds, one only 10 days old. Ten serotypes were found, with S. typhimurium being most frequently isolated. This is the first reported isolation of Salmonella spp. from the wild turkey.
