Good day,


I was hoping that someone would be able to give me guidance as to bacteria limits (TPC/TVC) of poultry receiving crates once washed.


Can anyone provide me with what the TPC/TVC limits should be for such crates?

Hi there,




The standard expected will depend on what poultry you are referring to; raw? cooked? live?


I would expect a clean crate to be typically < 100 APC/cm2 and Enteros to be absent although acceptability would depend on your situation.


Some useful information posted by Charles here:



Kind regards,
