Thank you J for your reply,

only poultry meat is processed here, the facility have three separate  departments 1. live bird area (Where live birds are slaughtered and de-feathered and Evisceration done.After EV whole chicken is chilled for almost 90 minutes and than shifted to   2. Deboning hall after deboning meat is shifted to packing hall. 3rd department is for futher processing of meat (Partially fried & full fried products). All these departments have separate entry route, workers are wearing uniforms washed from in house laundery. they are using cap, mask and gloves as PPEs. Building age is almost 3 years.

Dear Zargham Abbas,

 

I agree with Charles. This is a very wide topic.

Is there a specific case? specific problems you are dealing with?

Which micro organism is involved? What have you already done to search the root cause?


Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

Hello 

Zargham Abbas

On my experience, a special issue is the flow of the "clean/dirty" boxes in the installation- those used for raw poultry, and then return to the "wash boxes areas"- hope you understand the point. Condensation in evisceration area is another issue. Upper railing system- excess of grease- not a micro issue, but a chemical issue…..Then as posted above, is very plant specific issue...

best regards,

Leila
