Facing new pathogen reduction standards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, poultry processors are trying new or additional pathogen intervention strategies, according to a survey conducted at Auburn University.
Speaking at the Salmonella and Campylobacter Reduction Conference, Dr. Shelly McKee told the audience at the International Poultry Expo in Atlanta that there has been a significant increase in the number of U.S. poultry processing facilities using dip tanks, finishing chillers and post-chiller antimicrobial interventions. The results of the survey, which included 167 U.S. poultry processing plants, also indicated that campylobacter may not be effectively controlled with current interventions.Poultry processors reported that multi-hurdle approaches and biomapping are important to pathogen control.
Other significant findings included the following:
Avian influenza found on poultry farm in Spain
Operating markets will have stricter rules to follow
Poultry transactions also bouncing back
Two other suspects will have trials in June
Henningsen Cold Storage provides multi-temperature warehousing and logistics services
Hormel’s second-quarter net income drops 2 percent
