The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a revised directive updating the list of safe and suitable ingredients used in the production of meat, poultry and egg products. This directive provides inspection program personnel (IPP) with an updated list of substances that may be used to produce meat, poultry and egg products and lists approved On-Line Reprocessing and Off-Line Reprocessing Antimicrobial Intervention Systems. FSIS added an aqueous mixture of peroxyacetic acid for use as an antimicrobial substance and papain enzyme for use as an emulsifying agent. In addition, FSIS added an aqueous mixture of dimethylpolysiloxane for use as a spray, drench or dip for raw poultry carcasses and parts.
