What is Sanitation? <ul><li>World Health Organization (WHO) – “All precautions and measures which are necessary in production, processing, storage and distribution, in order to assure an unobjectionable, sound and palatable product which is suited for human consumption.” </li></ul><ul><li>Sanitation from Greek Sanitas – Health </li></ul><ul><li>N.

  53. 54. HACCP - What is it? <ul><li>HACCP involves only food safety issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Out of control = unsafe food produced. </li></ul><ul><li>Plans unique for each unit and product. </li></ul>
  54. 55. HACCP – What is it? How do you know the system works? 7. Establish Verification Procedures If you don’t write it down it doesn’t exit. 6. Establish a Record Keeping System What happens if we exceed a Critical limit? 5. Establish Corrective Actions Who, what, when , where and how will CCP’s be monitored? 4. Establish Monitoring Procedures What value indicates the process is in control? 3. Establish Critical Limits Where do things go wrong and how can we reliably control it? 2. Establish Critical Control Points What are the controllable food safety hazards? 1. Hazard Analysis Meaning Step
  55. 56. HOW DOES HACCP WORK? <ul><li>Processors must take the following steps: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>assemble a HACCP team to design their plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>describe the product and its method of production, distribution and intended consumer. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop and verify process flow diagrams </li></ul></ul>
  56. 57. How does HACCP Work? <ul><li>Identify at each step of the production flow chart any hazard to food safety as to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chemical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Physical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bacterial </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Support the hazard with a decision making document and scientific data </li></ul>
  57. 58. How does HACCP Work? <ul><li>If a CCP deviation is found the following must take place: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify the cause of deviation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe how the critical limit was restored </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe how the deviation can be prevented from happening again </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe how the adulterated product was reconditioned or what happened to the product </li></ul></ul>
  58. 59. FARM TO TABLE FSIS GOALS <ul><li>FSIS has made a commitment to expanding into the pre harvest areas of the food chain, working in a non regulatory capacity, to promote food safety. </li></ul><ul><li>Commitment to utilize the knowledge, skills and abilities of FSIS veterinary medical expertise to contribute to the goal of food safety. </li></ul>
