The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) last Friday posted on its website HACCP Verification Campylobacter Results, which range from July through December 2011.

FSIS since July 1, 2011 has implemented new Campylobacter performance standards for whole carcasses broilers and young turkeys, in conjunction with new lower standards for Salmonella in those same market classes. Overall, the young chicken industry is meeting the acceptable percent positive rate reflected in the new standard at 9.43 percent (10.4 percent acceptable).

The complete set of data tables and results are available in last week’s Constituent Update, which is posted on the FSIS website here.
