PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002945-17 Micro-scale slaughterhouses. Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 sets out rules for official controls on products of animal origin for human consumption.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002945-17 Micro-scale slaughterhouses

Carcasses of bovine animals over six months old have to be split lengthways into half carcasses down the spinal column for a post-mortem inspection by a veterinarian. This rule imposes a disproportionate cost burden on micro-scale slaughterhouses, which are attached to farms and slaughter a few hundred animals per year. If the height of their cold room does not allow lengthways-split carcasses to be hung awaiting inspection, carcasses have to be inspected one at a time. If, for example, three animals are slaughtered in the course of a single day, a veterinarian has to be present for practically the entire day, which significantly raises the cost of the meat.

The economic viability of micro-scale slaughterhouses would be helped by allowing a veterinarian to inspect cut half‐carcasses. EFSA 03/12/13 Scientific Opinion on monitoring procedures at slaughterhouses for bovines. This scientific opinion proposes toolboxes of welfare indicators for developing monitoring procedures at slaughterhouses for bovines stunned with penetrative captive bolt or slaughtered without stunning.

In particular, the opinion proposes welfare indicators together with their corresponding outcomes of consciousness, unconsciousness or death. In the case of slaughter with captive bolt stunning, the opinion proposes a toolbox of indicators and the outcomes to be used to assess consciousness in bovine animals at three key stages of monitoring: (a) after stunning and during shackling and hoisting; (b) during neck cutting or sticking; and (c) during bleeding. For slaughter of bovines without stunning, a set of indicators and outcomes are proposed in another toolbox to be used for (a) assessing unconsciousness, before releasing bovines from restraint; and (b) confirming death before carcass dressing begins.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-015769-15 EU meat inspection rules at slaughterhouses. UNIVERSITY OF VETERINARY MEDICINE HANNOVER VIA SAFEPORK - 2013 - Abattoir-specific ways of implementing risk-based meat inspection methods in Germany. Publication Date January 2013 Abstract In the European Union serological and/or bacteriological monitoring results on zoonoses are to be taken into account for the risk assessment of slaughter pig herds in the framework of the risk-based meat inspection.

Furthermore, the European food safety strategy pursues the additional goal to increase herd health. The new understanding of “One Health” (healthy animals and healthy people) and the new paradigm of assuring safe food (responsibility of food producers, prevention, risk-orientation, process-optimization, and continuous improvement) require new concepts for replacing the traditional meat inspection at the slaughter line with a risk-based meat inspection focusing at the whole food chain, and for modern and proactive veterinary diagnostics.

It's just how much». Ce ne sont pas ici les mots d'un lanceur d'alerte comme les autres mais ceux d'un inspecteur sanitaire du ministère américain de l'agriculture, à propos du nouveau modèle d'inspection HIMP (HACCP Inspection Models Project). Ce ministère prend des dispositions pour faire des économies sur le contrôle sanitaire de la viande de porc (après avoir pris les mêmes mesures pour la volaille): inspection confiée aux industriels eux-mêmes, réduction drastique des inspecteurs fonctionnaires dans les abattoirs, sur des chaînes d'abattoirs dont la vitesse est augmentée de 20 %. Abcès, lésions, ongles et poils passent au travers des contrôles! PLOS 22/04/15 Risk Factors for Whole Carcass Condemnations in the Swiss Slaughter Cattle Population. Abstract We used meat-inspection data collected over a period of three years in Switzerland to evaluate slaughterhouse-level, farm-level and animal-level factors that may be associated with whole carcass condemnation (WCC) in cattle after slaughter.

PLOS 22/04/15 Risk Factors for Whole Carcass Condemnations in the Swiss Slaughter Cattle Population

The objective of this study was to identify WCC risk factors so they can be communicated to, and managed by, the slaughter industry and veterinary services. During meat inspection, there were three main important predictors of the risk of WCC; the slaughtered animal's sex, age, and the size of the slaughterhouse it was processed in. WCC for injuries and significant weight loss (visible welfare indicators) were almost exclusive to smaller slaughterhouses. Cattle exhibiting clinical syndromes that were not externally visible (e.g. pneumonia lesions) and that are associated with fattening of cattle, end up in larger slaughterhouses.

Six ans après l'entrée en vigueur du nouveau paquet législatif relatif à l'hygiène des denrées alimentaires et compte tenu des récents débats au sujet des risques sanitaires liés au manque d'hygiène dans certains abattoirs européens, il convient de faire le point sur la mise en œuvre du Paquet Hygiène et plus particulièrement des règles spécifiques d'organisation des contrôles officiels concernant les produits d'origine animale destinés à la consommation humaine.

Conformément au règlement (CE) no 854/2004 du Parlement européen et du Conseil fixant ces règles, les États membres sont tenus d'établir des listes d'établissements agréés et de les contrôler. Selon ce règlement, «lorsque les contrôles révèlent des carences ou des irrégularités, il convient de prendre les mesures appropriées». Il convient de rappeler le caractère particulier des abattoirs, où de nombreux aspects sont déterminants pour la sécurité des aliments et donc pour la santé publique. 1. 2.

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.
