HACCP Model for Beef Slaughter
Replaces: 1996 Version of the Generic HACCP Model for Beef Slaughter
This generic HACCP model illustrates the slaughter processing category. Although this is a beef slaughter model, the model may be used as a starting point for developing a slaughter HACCP plan for other classes of livestock. The slaughter process has inherent food safety hazards that originate with the live animal. Therefore, the slaughter process has heightened food safety significance. Slaughter establishments typically produce carcasses which are raw intact finished products. The food safety hazards identified for the slaughter process are also common to the Raw Intact and Raw Non-Intact processing categories.
