Good Morning, 

 

I am working to develop some micro standards for our small further processing plant. I would like to be able to test our raw product coming in (beef, chicken) as well as our final product (sausages, hot dogs, deli meats). I have looked online for acceptable limits for micro testing, thinking APC counts but none to be found. I realize that I can test for absence of E coli 0157, but what about the broader test of APC. I want to be able to determine the freshness of a sample with APC counts but not sure how to set the parameters.

 

Should I be looking into a risk assessment or do I need to contact our local lab to find out what they suggest? We are a Canadian facility.

If any use, typical UK targets for APC, etc for various forms of  meat were previously posted here by the esteemed Mike Green if you have the time to do a little searching.

Hi wafa,

 

Do you have a reference Listeria micro standard/limit for raw, to be cooked, frozen beef/chicken ?
