The transmission of Foodborne Diseases (FBD) by bacteria constitute a public health problem in the world. This study aimed to identify the presence of Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp. and E. coli in broiler chickens’ carcasses of Botucatu, SP, Brazil, by means of microbiological and molecular methods. Sixty samples of chilled chickens’ carcasses of different brands were randomly collected from supermarkets and meat houses located in both peripheral and central area of the city, from January 2015 to January 2016. Later, Campylobacter, Salmonella and E. coli was isolated from poultry carcasses by conventional microbiological methods, and confirmed by biochemical and PCR tests. The prevalence was 38.3% of Campylobacter, Salmonella, 13.3%, and E. coli, 60%.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
