Pathogen Controls in Beef Operations Survey to Begin This Week

Monday, May 6, 2013

(American Meat Institute)

Beginning today, May 6, FSIS will conduct a comprehensive survey of inspection program personnel in select beef slaughtering and processing establishments to gather information about the controls and procedures these establishments have in place to address pathogen contamination and ensure that their systems are effective. FSIS will survey selected personnel in a statistically representative number of establishments. In September 2011, FSIS announced to the public in a Federal Register notice its intent to conduct the survey. In February 2013, FSIS made available a draft survey for public comment and now has made changes in response to comments.  AMI provided comments and these are reflected in the final survey.   A summary of the public comments and copy of the final survey is available here.
