The collected samples were 30 from each of frozen and fresh Quail. Salmonella could be detected only in one sample of frozen quail with isolation rate of 3.3%. The isolated Salmonella was identified serologically as Salmonella Kentucky. An experiment was designed to evaluate the effect of different concentrations (1%, 1.5%, and 2%) of Rosemary, Clove and Thyme essential oils against isolated strain of salmonella artificially inoculated in Quail meat during cold storage at 4℃.The obtained results revealed that each of Rosemary, Clove and Thyme EOs has antimicrobial effect against S.kentucky and Clove oil at concentration of 2% gives the best effectiveness.
