Foodborne Diseases (DVA) are a public health problem, being Salmonella spp. one of the main pathogens in poultry farming. Aimed to evaluate the sanitary management of a small aviary in Jataí-GO and its relationship with the presence of Salmonella spp. The establishment was characterized as family farming with small-scale production and female management. Samples were collected in two lots for microbiological analysis of the environment at entry (D0), at 28th (D28) and at 60th (D60) day; carcasses, evisceration bench and plucker. Water pH and chlorine were also measured; ambient and carcass temperatures were checked and a good production practices follow-up form was made. Data analysis was descriptive considering current legislation. Absence of Salmonella spp. in all samples (bottoms of chick transport boxes; eggshell residues of boxes; early and fattening rations; down-shed crib, feeder and water troughs, walls and screens, outdoor area shed and compost, and carcasses) and appropriate values of pH, chlorine and temperature. Thus, the implementation and rigorous monitoring of the standards in the Good Manufacturing Practice (BPF) and Standard Operating Hygiene Procedures (PPHO) programs in the process of raising and processing chicken meat, in addition to controlling the spread of this pathogen in the flocks and carcasses, they ensured a final quality product to the consumer.
