Salmonella is one of the major sources of toxi-infection in humans in France and United States. The incidence of human salmonellosis has considerably increased over the past 20 years and this can be largely attributed to epidemics of S. enteritidis phage type 4 in poultry in numerous countries. In this article, we formulate and analyse a model in which the transmission of the disease is determined by contact between hens and Salmonella in the environment.
