Aggregate Salmonella & Campylobacter Categorization of Raw Chicken Parts, NRTE Comminuted Poultry, Young Chicken Carcass and Young Turkey Carcass Establishments Using Moving Windows

Reporting period for this data: December 4, 2016 to February 24, 2018 | Download in Excel | PDF

  • Summary information is intended to provide industry and other stakeholders timely updates about progress being made to reduce contamination in poultry.
  • Only establishments in which the minimum number of samples has been analyzed or the maximum number of positives was exceeded in one or more completed moving windows are included in these aggregate categories and the totals.
  • Establishments that produce 1,000 lbs. or less of each product per day, or slaughter 20,000 head or fewer of each species per year, are not included.
  • Differences in the total number of establishments listed for Salmonella and Campylobacter in the aggregate tables are due to establishments that did not have enough samples for a specific pathogen in any moving window to be categorized.
  • Category definitions and contact information are presented after the tables.

Category Definitions

  • Category 1: Establishments that have achieved 50 percent or less of the Salmonella or Campylobacter maximum allowable percent positive during all completed 52-week moving windows over the last 3 months.
  • Category 2: Establishments that meet the Salmonella or Campylobacter maximum allowable percent positive for all completed 52-week moving windows but have results greater than 50 percent of the maximum allowable percent positive during any completed 52-week moving window over the last 3 months.
  • Category 3: Establishments that have exceeded the Salmonella or Campylobacter maximum allowable percent positive during any completed 52-week moving window over the last 3 months.
  • Passing: Establishments that meet the Campylobacter maximum allowable percent positive for NRTE comminuted chicken or turkey during all completed 52-week moving windows over the last 3 months.
  • Failing: Establishments that have exceeded the Campylobacter maximum allowable percent positive for NRTE comminuted chicken or turkey during any completed 52-week moving window over the last 3 months.

NOTE: Results are from the direct plating method for Campylobacter in comminuted chicken and turkey products. FSIS also tests for Campylobacter in these products using an enrichment method (30 mL test portion). As described in a March 30, 2015 Constituent Update, the Agency is taking this step because the enrichment method can detect a higher percent of positive samples. FSIS is analyzing data generated from both the direct plating and the enrichment methods, as explained in the February 2016 Federal Register notice. The agency will add results from the enrichment method to its aggregate monthly posting when available.

Questions

Refer questions regarding an individual establishment’s posted category status to the Risk, Innovations, and Management Staff through askFSIS using the “General Inspection Policy” product field from the drop-down menu, and the “Sampling – Salmonella” category field, or by telephone at 1-800-233-3935.
