Campylobacter performance target limits

MPI is looking for feedback on proposed options for Campylobacter performance target limits established as part of MPI’s routine monitoring of Campylobacter.

What’s being proposed?

MPI is consulting on the need for any change to the current limits used for Campylobacter performance targets by New Zealand poultry processors of broiler chicken.

In January 2013, MPI amended the Campylobacter performance target requirements for broiler chickens. MPI agreed to review this target after at least a year’s data had been collected so that seasonal variations in performance were considered.

The options outlined in the consultation include changes to Campylobacter performance targets, retaining current limits, introducing additional measures to assist businesses with meeting the performance targets, and ways to improve the performance of premises not meeting the targets.
