United States authorities issue rule to reduce salmonella in frozen chicken products

Poultry producers must reduce bacteria salmonella in certain chicken products at very low levels to help prevent food poisoning according to a rule issued Friday by US agriculture authorities.

The norm, which will come into force in 2025will consider salmonella an adulterant—a contaminant capable of causing illness through food—when it is detected above certain levels in breaded and filled frozen products. This includes frozen Gordon Bleu Chicken and Chicken Kiev, dishes that appear to be cooked all the way through.but that have actually been heat treated to set the pasta or filling.

It is the first time that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) declares salmonella an adulterant in raw chicken, just as certain bacteria are considered E. Coli contaminants that should not be present in raw ground beef sold in stores, said USDA Undersecretary for Food Safety Sandra Eskin.
