An anti-contamination treatment has been developed to help US poultry processors meet strict Russian import requirements.

Inspexx150, which was developed by food safety service provider Ecolab, is a direct contact tissue treatment that reduces the levels of Salmonella, Campylobacter, E.coli and other bacteria on poultry surfaces.

The technique, a peroxyacid-based antimicrobial food additive, was developed as part of a complete line of treatments - the Poultry Export Program - to control foodborne pathogens and spoilage microorganisms on food surfaces.

The company provides cleaning, sanitising, food safety and infection prevention products and services to the food service and food and beverage processing sector.

It was designed to meet the unique microbiological and chemical requirements set when exporting poultry to Russia.

“Poultry producers face many challenges including increased reporting and regulations, as well as magnified incidents of food safety,”​ said Timothy Mulhere, senior vice president and general manager of Ecolab Food and Beverage North America.

“We are committed to helping our customers meet these challenges, expand their poultry exports and improve the quality, safety and productivity of their operations.”
