Inline and offline egg processing facilities have a unique set of food safety challenges, particularly when live animals are housed on common ground or in close proximity to the processing facilities. Food-borne pathogens including Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter and Avian influenza can easily be transferred via foot traffic, equipment movement or other mechanisms. A comprehensive cleaning, sanitation and disinfection program can help mitigate this risk.
Key microbial harborage points include:
- Egg Trays
- Egg Tray Washers
- Belting and Packaging Equipment
- Floors and Drain Surfaces
