The probability of contamination of domestic refrigerators seems to be greater for Salmonella, than other, distinctly psychrotolerant bacteria. This survey investigated Salmonella spp. contamination of domestic refrigerators in households (n = 100). The presence of Salmonella species was found in 13.95% of households that kept eggs in designated egg storage in refrigerators (n = 86). We identified 12 serotypes of Salmonella spp. with antimicrobial resistance, of which 50% were identified as S. Typhimurium. The results obtained confirm the need to strongly advise consumers how to properly arrange different foodstuffs inside household refrigerators.
