Learn about quality and safety in poultry processing

Whether it be wings, nuggets and sandwiches, and whether it be broasted, baked and grilled. Whatever the form, Americans love chicken and continue to consume more each year. Chicken surpassed pork in the 1980s and beef in the 1990s to become the most-consumed meat in the U.S. It has continued to trend upward in per capita consumption.

As the poultry industry grows, the measures of quality and the protocols to improve food safety grow with it. Two free 3M sponsored webinars are available to help you take a holistic approach to quality and safety for poultry processing.

Control of Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry processing, led by Dr. Manpreet Singh, Professor and Extension Food Safety Specialist in the University of Georgia Department of Poultry Science

This webinar will provide an overview of challenges in poultry processing and best practices for the control of Salmonella and Campylobacter. Not all intervention points are standard throughout poultry processing, and there can be a lot of variation in how companies mitigate the risk of Salmonella and Campylobacter.

Controlling the processing environment to prevent contamination requires a multi-faceted approach. Facilities should implement a multi-hurdle approach with the appropriate validations and verifications to get the best results. This webinar will help you understand high-risk areas and so you can implement appropriate interventions.
