Keeping Poultry Processing Clean & Sanitary

chicken-processingEfficient meat and poultry plant cleaning and sanitation is often neglected as it requires extra work and the positive effects are not immediately visible. However, failures in plant hygiene can cause high financial losses in the long run. Unhygienic conditions in a meat or poultry plant result in:

  • unattractive, tasteless products
  • spoilage of valuable food and/or
  • foodborne diseases

Proper cleaning and sanitation is becoming increasingly important in modern processing as more perishable and hygienically sensitive products come on the market, particularly convenience foods such as prepacked portioned chilled poultry, vacuum-packed sliced sausage and ham products, and meat products in controlled atmosphere packages. The microbial load of such products must be low to guarantee adequate shelf life and to avoid spoilage during distribution.

Salmonella bacteria is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the United States. It can cause serious illness in the elderly, infants, and persons with chronic diseases. One outbreak of salmonella or other foodborne illnesses can destroy a company. Proper sanitation and avoiding cross-contamination are key in the fight against pathogens.
