What is it about?

This paper evaluated the bacterial reduction in carcasses sanitized with peracetic acid during the slaughtering process. The ability of this antimicrobial to prevent cross contamination between carcasses was also evaluated. The application of peracetic acid by immersion, using a concentration of 0.07%, reduced 2 log CFU/mL of Salmonella and 1.5 log CFU/mL of Escherichia coli.

Our conclusions show that peracetic acid is more efficient than water to prevent cross-contamination of chicken carcasses during the slaughtering process.
