Poultry Processing Exemptions II (2010)

Small Meat Processors December 16, 2010 Print Friendly and PDF


Contents

Overview

We first covered poultry processing exemptions in 2009, but these complex regulations continue to confuse producers, processors, and regulators. What's more, states can and do change how they interpret the federal regulations. In this webinar, we hear from policy officials from USDA-FSIS and the state of North Carolina about what the federal exemptions allow and how they work from a state perspective.

The 2009 webinar recording and presentation slides can be found here.

Using an Exempt Facility to Process Poultry from more than one Producer

As discussed on the webinar, a person may process poultry for other producers under the "Small Enterprise" exemption, if the processor first buys the live poultry and then, after slaughter and processing, sells the processed poultry back to the producer, who then operates as a distributor selling the poultry. Other details apply: view the slides and webinar for more information.
