Title: SALMONELLA CONTROL ON POULTRY USING A DISINFECTANT DIP
Agency: USDA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $50,000.00
 

Abstract:

CURRENTLY, POULTRY PRODUCTS WHICH ARE PROCESSED AND DISTRIBUTED IN A NON-COOKED FORM, MAY CONTAIN SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF PATHOGENIC BACTERIA SUCH AS SALMONELLA, LISTERIA AND CAMPYLOBACTER. POULTRY PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY HAS NOT AT THIS TIME DEVELOPED A SYSTEM OF EVISCERATION THAT DOES NOT CONTAMINATE THE CARCASS TO SOME EXTENT. TECHNOLOGY TO ELIMINATE THESE CONTAMINATING PATHOGENS FROM THE CARCASS IS NOT AVAILABLE. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH ARE TO EVALUATE THE SALMONELLA REDUCTION/ELIMINATION POTENTIAL OF DISINFECTANT, AND TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THE DISINFECTANT ON THE OVERALL APPEARANCE AND SENSORY CHARACTERISTIC OF POULTRY PRODUCTS. BROILER CARCASSES WILL BE INOCULATED WITH KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF TWO SELECTED SALMONELLA STRAINS AND WILL THEN BE SUBJECTED TO DISINFECTANT DIP TREATMENTS. SALMONELLA AND TOTAL AEROBIC BACTERIAL NUMBER CONCENTRATIONS WILL BE DETERMINED TO ESTABLISH THE SALMONELLA REDUCTION AND SHELF-LIFE EXTENSION POTENTIAL OF THE DISINFECTANT.
