Meat Processing Safety

first_imgPoultry researchers at the University of Georgia are partnering with a team from Kansas State University to study how to effectively control the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in the nation’s meat and poultry processing facilities.The study seeks to protect meat plant workers and their surrounding communities from the spread of COVID-19 through practical solutions. The research is funded by a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.Harsha Thippareddi, John Bekkers Professor in Poultry Science at UGA, and Manpreet Singh, poultry science professor and interim head of the UGA Department of Food Science and Technology, are co-directors of the project along with A. Sally Davis, an assistant professor of experimental pathology in the Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine. Thippareddi and Singh provide extensive poultry experience and industry connections from the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and, with backgrounds as food safety specialists, will lead the grant’s industry outreach efforts.A key objective of the project will be verifying the effectiveness of many of the approved cleaners and sanitizers for inactivating SARS-CoV-2 during plant processing and sanitation operations.“Because there have been a number of outbreaks among employees in meat processing plants, there is always a perception that food or meat can be contaminated as well,” said Thippareddi. Frozen chicken wings imported to China from Brazil in August tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, he said. “This is a potential issue and we need to know the answers to what the risks to humans are if the coronavirus is present in food, and will it survive in the food or will it be destroyed during cooking and other food processing operations?”Using Kansas State’s Biosecurity Research Institute, a high-containment research facility, researchers will study various potential contamination methods for meat and poultry, how long the virus survives on meat products, how various storage and preparation methods influence the infectivity of the virus and what product-treatment methods can be used to mitigate the virus on food products.”Nationally and internationally, many facilities that produce meat and poultry products have been temporarily closed because of COVID-19 outbreaks,” said Davis, Kansas State’s project director of the grant. “This has put a major strain on food production, limiting the amount of meat and poultry on grocery store shelves and disrupting food and feed supply chains across the globe. Research is necessary to understand why SARS-CoV-2 is such a problem in meat and poultry processing environments and how we can mitigate the problem.”While animals, such as cattle, swine and chickens, do not carry the virus, infections with SARS-CoV-2 are primarily thought to occur by exposure to microdroplets in the air generated by infected workers.“The ultimate goal would be for us to better understand how the SARS-CoV-2 virus — if at all — can be transmitted through meat and poultry and through contact surfaces in poultry plants,” Singh said. Thippareddi added that “people working in meat processing plants may have the illness and, if it is aerosolizing, the virus can get onto the meat. If it is on the meat, it can get to people. All the poultry processing plants are taking preventive measures to stop the spread of the virus, because if you can prevent people from getting the virus and keep the virus from being aerosolized, you can prevent it getting onto the food.”The team will evaluate potential sources of exposure and determine the amount and the longevity of infectious virus that is present during and after meat processing and packaging activities. Researchers seek to identify, develop, validate and deliver practical cleaning and disinfection strategies, in addition to developing mathematical models to predict and reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 exposure in meat and poultry processing facilities.The project will also rely on input from an industry advisory board composed of senior level directors of food safety and plant operations at Hormel Foods, Smithfield Foods, National Beef Packing Company, Cargill Protein North America, JBS USA, Wayne Farms, Jennie-O Turkey Store, Tyson Fresh Meats and Costco Wholesale.Thippareddi and Singh will conduct site visits at various meat and poultry processing plants to evaluate current processing methods and to lead discussions with processors on COVID-19 mitigation strategies, develop new food safety training materials based on the needs of meat processors of varying sizes, conduct web-based trainings based on the research outcomes of the project, and assist in publishing the research findings.“The goal is to provide guidance to the meat-processing industry in the form of science-based best practices,” Singh said.For information on the UGA Department of Poultry Science, visit poultry.caes.uga.edu.last_img read more

Qatar World Cup to start at Al Bayt Stadium as schedule announced

first_imgDOHA, Qatar (AFP) — Qatar will kick off the 2022 World Cup at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, organisers announced yesterday, as they revealed the schedule for the finals.In a joint statement, FIFA and Qatar’s Supreme Committee organisational body said that the gas-rich Gulf nation will start the World Cup at the 60,000-capacity ground on November 21.The final will be held at the 80,000-seat Lusail Stadium in Doha nearly a month later on December 18.The opening match will begin a group stage that will feature four matches a day for 12 days, spread over eight stadiums around Qatar.Group matches will kick off at three-hour intervals, beginning at 1.00pm local time, with the late match kicking off at 10:00pm local time.The tournament will then jump straight to the last 16, with two matches a day until two rest days and the start of the quarter- and semi-finals, which will both be spread over two days.Qualification for the World Cup has begun in Asia and Africa, but is yet to start in Europe, the Americas and Oceania. Organisers said yesterday that the draw for the finals would be made “after the March 2022 international match calendar qualifying window”.Both the Al Bayt and Lusail stadiums are still under construction, although the Al Bayt ground — which takes its shape from the traditional tents used by nomadic peoples in the Gulf region — is nearing completion, according to World Cup organisers.Last week rights group Amnesty International claimed that around a hundred migrant workers at the Al-Bayt stadium, which is 50 kilometres north of Doha, have yet to receive outstanding wages in full after not being paid for up to seven months.Earlier this month several sources told AFP that World Cup organisers will lay off an undisclosed number of staff as Qatar cuts costs amid the coronavirus economic downturn.Qatar has one of the world’s highest per capita infection rates.last_img read more

Back Nelson to make winning return

first_imgReigning champion jockey Dane Nelson, who has been riding successfully at Assiniboia Downs in Canada for the past four months, returns to the saddle at Caymanas Park today and should win the opening race over 1200 metres (claiming $350,000 – $300,000) aboard down-in-class SHADE OF BEAUTY.The Patrick Lynch-trained five-year-old mare showed little behind ITALIANO over this trip on a $450,000 tag last Sunday but has won three races so far this season, and on the strength of her good third to FORCE DE JOUR over 1100 metres on August 29, gets the nod over BELIEVE and AWESOME CODE in a field of seven.First-time runners ZUGULU, under leading jockey Shane Ellis, and the Wayne DaCosta-trained A THOUSAND STARS (Robert Halledeen up) have both looked well forward at exercise and should fight out the finish of the second race over 1100 metres for native-bred two-year-olds.It should be close based on their exercise reports, but preference is for A THOUSAND STARS, a bay filly by Storm Craft out of the Natural Selection mare Heart of Gold. The Richard Azan-trained ZUGULU is a bay colt by Hold Me Back out of Candy Girl, who was declared to run in the first race won by Blue Dixie on Sunday but was a late scratch.VALENTINE BOY, who showed good speed behind MEL AGAIN over 1200 metres some weeks ago, looks the best of a moderate lot of maiden five-year-olds and up in the third race over 1100 metres. Trained by Roy Matthews, VALENTINE BOY (Shamaree Muir up) is steadily improving and can put away WESTERN FAITH and TIZ A CAT in an eight-horse field.DEMOLITION BOY, with Ellis riding for trainer Welsh Soutar, is preferred to the lightly-raced but improving GOLD MEMBER and GANJA MAN in the fourth race over the straight for maiden three-year-olds. DEMOLITION BOY is well drawn at post position 11 and seems programmed to take this event.The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by STAN ROY (Ellis up) and the well-prepared 3-y-o filly JESSE’S FAVORITE, with veteran jockey Ian Spence riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny. Their respective dangers are MISS ADDI and KING WITHIN.EARLY SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) SHADE OF BEAUTY/ BELIEVE(2) A THOUSAND STARS/ ZUGULU(3) VALENTINE BOY/ WESTERN FAITH(4) DEMOLITION BOY/ GOLD MEMBER(5) STAN ROY/MISS ADDI(6) JESSE’S FAVORITE- O.C.last_img read more
