Bulletin UASVM Veterinary Medicine 72(2) / 2015 Hazard Assessment and Risk Analysis in Two Pork Slaughterhouses. WORLD POULTRY 15/06/16 Insight into poultry carcass lesions. The objective of poultry abattoirs is to produce saleable chicken carcasses, meat and products that carry no health hazards for poultry, animals and humans.
In practice, however, lesions regularly occur on broiler carcasses. Dr Wim Tondeur has developed a visual guide to identify lesions. He shares his insights into the most common issues that arise on the slaughter line and how to deal with them correctly. A total of 47 abattoirs in 12 European and African countries were evaluated over the course of 4 years.
The aim of Dr Tondeur of Tondeur Veterinary Training Consultancy and Advice, who joined forces with Zinpro Animal Nutrition Inc., was to identify and describe lesions in broiler carcasses in a visual guide.

JOURNAL OF VETERINARY RESEARCH - 2013 - A survey on auditing, quality assurance systems and legal frameworks in five selected slaughterhouses in Bulawayo, south-western Zimbabwe. The purpose of this study was to explore the audits, quality assurance (QA) programmes and legal frameworks used in selected abattoirs in Zimbabwe and slaughterhouse workers’ perceptions on their effectiveness.
Data on slaughterhouse workers was gathered through a self-completed questionnaire and additional information was obtained from slaughterhouse and government records. External auditing was conducted mainly by the Department of Veterinary Public Health with little contribution from third parties. Internal auditing was restricted to export abattoirs. The checklist used on auditing lacked objective assessment criteria and respondents cited several faults in the current audit system.

BMC Veterinary Research 2015, 11:37 Suitability of sentinel abattoirs for syndromic surveillance using provincially inspected bovine abattoir condemnation data. Data source Pneumonic lung portion condemnation data were obtained from the Food Safety Decision Support System (FSDSS) database maintained by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA).
The database contains information regarding the number and reason for daily organs/body systems condemnations in provincially inspected abattoirs in Ontario. The condemnation category of pneumonic lung was selected for these analyses, as this category represents a major health issue for beef cattle and was among the most frequently reported portion condemnations by provincial inspectors during the study period. Pneumonic lung condemnation refers to bovine lungs which were condemned for lesions indicative of a previous localized and resolved antero-ventral pneumonia infection (personal communication Abdul Rehmtulla, DVM, OMAFRA, Stone Road, Guelph, Ontario).
This study conducted statistical analyses utilizing a pre-existing government database. Descriptive analyses.

These hazards include Salmonella, Yersinia enterocolitica, Toxoplasma gondii, Trichinella, Cysticercus (Taenia solium) and mycobacteria. An epidemiological indicator is defined as the prevalence or incidence of the hazard at a certain stage of the food chain or an indirect measure of the hazards that correlates to human health risk caused by the hazard. . © European Food Safety Authority, 2011.
