New salmonella, campylobacter performance standards for poultry lack scientific foundation

New Food Safety and Inspection Service performance standards for salmonella and campylobacter in poultry will be costly, with no demonstrated public benefit.
New regulations from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service to be implemented in July mean broiler chickens produced in the U.S. will be subject to new performance standards for salmonella and a performance standard for campylobacter for the first time. Scientific data exist that clearly demonstrate no relationship between human salmonellosis and prevalence of salmonella on poultry. The new performance standards will only place additional burdens on the poultry industry, possibly resulting in higher food costs to the consumer with no measurable public health benefit. Such significant changes, without strong scientific data showing public health benefits, place the U.S. chicken industry at a competitive disadvantage for export opportunities.
