Canada CFIA is Working with the Poultry Industry to Reduce Salmonella in Raw Frozen Chicken
In the last ten years the frequency of salmonella illness in Canada has steadily increased, despite efforts to reduce Salmonella in frozen raw breaded chicken products (e.g., chicken nuggets, chicken fingers, chicken strips, popcorn chicken and chicken burgers) these products continue to a source of salmonella infection in Canada. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is working with the poultry industry to reduce Salmonella below a detectable level. Processors need to identify Salmonella as a hazard and to implement changes to produce an end product that reduces salmonella. CFIA gave the industry one year to implement. @ http://www.meatingplace.com/Industry/News/Details/78585
