Poultry processors have a new tool to help prevent microbial contamination during processing.  Ecolab Inc. today announced Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Inspexx* 100, an antimicrobial food treatment for pathogen reduction in poultry processing. Developed by Ecolab, a world leader in food safety technology, Inspexx 100 is a patented peroxyacid chemistry that can be used throughout all stages of poultry processing to reduce microbial contamination on poultry carcasses, parts and giblets. Laboratory tests prove that Inspexx 100 effectively reduces pathogenic bacteria on poultry parts including Salmonella typhimurium, Listera monocytogenes, E. coli O157:H7 and Campylobacter jejuni.  Inspexx 100 is appropriate for multiple poultry treatment interventions, including cabinet rinse water and chiller treatments, and can help improve overall processing performance with higher levels of safety and quality.
