FSIS Re-testing Carcass Pathogen Baselines   Pork – Industry News

USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is running a series of tests on cattle, hog, chicken and turkey carcasses with the objective of resetting pathogen testing baselines. Among the specific baselines that need to be addressed are those for beef trim, other beef components, bench trim, ground beef and chicken parts, say USDA officials. These baselines are used to determine the industry’s process control capability, FSIS Deputy Assistant Administrator Daniel Engeljohn, told participants at a an E. coli O157:H7 prevention seminar presented by the North American Meat Processors Association.
