Dear mentors – Seeking guidance on the CCPs for Poultry Slaughtering.

 

I have researched and seen different variations US, Canada, New Zealand, and a few universities.

What I have seen is a difference in CCP Classification.

 

I have seen:

- Reception (antibiotics), is CCP – while not in others

- Venting/Evisceration a CCP – while not in others

- Inspection (step after evisceration) – while not in others

- Chill Wash and Final Washes the only CCPs

- Cutting and Deboning for both B & C as CCPs -while not in others

- Cold Storage as a CCP – while not in others

- Transport as a CCP – while not in others

 

Can I get your professional opinions of what the CCPs should be?

 

Regards and thanks

Hi bzefella,

 

I anticipate that yr observations indicate that different bodies/organizations may have divergent interpretations/implementations of "HACCP".

 

This is a correct conclusion. There is no uniquely "correct" version of haccp and similarly regarding CCPs.

 

In addition, "haccp" is evolving with time. CCPs commonly agreed on 2-3 decades ago are often now categorised as PRPs.

 

Your appropriate selection may relate to factors such as local Regulatory issues, specific Standard involved (if any), customer contract, etc.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

The previous reply is correct.  The CCPs highly depend on regulatory requirements.  In the US, the CCPs are mandated by USDA/FSIS.  The inspection for fecal material of the carcass/pieces/recouped carcass is mandatory and is done after evisceration. Another CCP that is mandatory is temperature which is after chill and depending on what further steps the facility is doing (ie cutup, marinating pieces etc) there may be additional temperature CCPs down stream.

you MUST have some sort of carcass inspection post evis as a CCP, this isn't just checking for fecal matter in/on the carcass, but also for identifying any pathology that should not be consumed

 

The rest will depend on your process flow

Hi Bzefella

 

For our poultry processing we have 2 CCPs

the first is the PIA inspection (Poultry Inspection Assistant) which primary objective is to the remove any diseased animals from the line as mentioned by Scampi

the second is the metal detection of the finished product, we have a lot of metal flying around the plant 

 

temperature controls both environmental and carcass are pre-requisites

Hi all,

Just to jump on this thread rather than start a new one. We have EV as a CCP also but our current procedures/monitoring is very vague. Our OV today has asked what our tolerance is for EV, as her bosses are asking her. We don't have anything documented and was looking for a bit of advise/normal tolerance levels? She said her broiler plants tolerance is 5%.

I assume she means tolerance of improperly eviscerated birds.
