The USDAâ€™s Food Safety and Inspection Service released a proposed regulatory framework for a new strategy to control Salmonella contamination and reduce illnesses from poultry products. The agency will host a virtual public meeting on November 3 to get input from stakeholders on the framework. The proposed framework has three components: requiring that incoming flocks be tested for Salmonella before entering an establishment; enhancing establishment process control monitoring and FSIS verification; last is implementing an enforceable final product standard. â€œWe know that Salmonella in poultry is a complex problem with no single solution,â€ says USDA Deputy Undersecretary Sandra Eskin. â€œWe have identified a series of strategic actions FSIS could take that are likely to drive down Salmonella infections linked to poultry product consumption, and we are pressing those in this proposed framework.â€ For more information on the virtual meeting, go to the Meetings and Events page on the FSIS website.
