17 Iceland-15060517 MSM – two types I - traditional/hard method: high pressure (180-250 Bar)  heat treatment  meat product II – soft method: lower pressure and a Baader filter (2-3 mm)  microbiological criteria (as minced meat)  Ca content < 0.1 % of fresh product  meat preparation  heat treatment  raw material and storage SANCO

18 Iceland-15060518

19 Iceland-15060519  not permitted according to current legislation (64/433/EEC; 71/118/EEC)  permitted according to Article 3 (2) of Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 applicable with effect from 1-1-2006 SANCO anti-microbial treatment - 1 Legal base

21 Iceland-15060521 anti-microbial treatment - 3  actions at primary production (Regulation (EC) No 2160/2003)  HACCP is a prerequisite  only for poultry meat  substances need approval SANCO Principles of draft proposal

22 Iceland-15060522 anti-microbial treatment - 4  currently four substances under consideration: chlorine dioxide, acidified sodium chlorite, trisodium phosphate, peroxyacids  not more than one substance at a time  rinsing after application is required  labelling (consumer information) SANCO Details

23 Iceland-15060523 anti-microbial treatment - 5  chlorine dioxide – reaction products?  acidified sodium chlorite – reaction products?  peroxyacids - data on efficacy are limited  trisodium phosphate – approved as additive SANCO The substances
