Special Issue "Food Safety Management and Poultry Production"
A special issue of Agriculture (ISSN 2077-0472).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2013)
New and improved food safety practices during poultry processing remains an acute necessity due to ongoing outbreaks of foodborne illness associated with consumption of contaminated poultry. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that poultry causes the 4th most foodborne illnesses and the most deaths among major food commodities. As such, there remains a need for research to identify and control hazards at all stages of the poultry supply chain. Control of foodborne contamination occurs at different stages of poultry production beginning at the farm through slaughter, and also includes safe poultry handling practices by consumers. Newer methods to control foodborne contamination have emerged, including the use of bio-control strategies. Such decontamination interventions and strategies must be validated as part of a hazard analysis critical control points (HACCP)-based food safety system.
