Salmonella infestation occurs among the population, most of the time, as a result of eating foods such as meat, eggs, or products that contain raw eggs. The most serious complication of infestation with this bacterium is the development of typhoid fever, a disease that can lead even to death in less developed countries. Salmonellosis can also cause complications among children, the elderly, pregnant women, or people with low immunity. It was observed, after analyzing the statistical data that the number of cases of Salmonella infestation has been increasing over the last analyzed period. This paper seeks to analyze the impact of Salmonella infestation on the egg and poultry meat market in Romania, taking the period between 1995 and 2015 as well as the link between these variables. It is also interesting to see how the value of imports and exports on these two markets evolved, taking into account this variable. Of course, not only factors such as Salmonella infestation are defining to observe the oscillation of the above-mentioned elements. The level of consumer education and income, access to information, are only a few elements that have an important role in the decision to purchase agri-food products.
