Industry performance target Target: 3.78 log 10 CFU Campylobacter per carcass Purpose: to verify whether a food safety control system applied to the slaughter and dressing of broiler chicken achieves a regulated performance target for Campylobacter
Who should establish/who should apply Established: by regulator in consultation with industry Applied: by processors of broiler chickens. GHP and hazard-based measures are selected by individual processors that best meet the target.
Point in food chain – food/food process Food: fresh raw broiler chicken carcasses Point of food chain: after slaughter, dressing and initial chilling to check status at the end of primary processing
Sampling plan /method of analysis Sampling plan: tailored to size of industry 3 whole carcasses selected randomly details provided in technical manual Method of analysis: direct plate enumeration (mCCDA)
Addition of latest processing period displaces the results from the oldest processing period samples 3 random samples per processing day Processing period = 5 processing days 15 samples/processing period = 45 samples per moving window Moving Window MW = 3 latest processing periods Interpretation: CPT moving window /failure description Each MWF scores 1. These are cumulative until reset to zero after the next compliant moving window 7 or more/ 45 samples from MW are greater than 3.78 log10CFU/carcass (Standard Throughput) Moving Window Failure (MWF) MW = 3 successive processing periods
