At a time when poultry processors seek to avoid recalls of any kind, taking steps to safeguard their products is paramount. Delivering on promises of safety and quality includes inspecting poultry products for contaminants of all types and sizes, including the smallest bone fragments. Advances in technology, including new detector technologies, help processors find calcified bone fragments down to 1 mm in size.
When there is little margin for error in food safety and profitability, there is little tolerance for contaminants that get in the way. Success in finding and removing contaminants that pose food safety and recall risks depends on the type of poultry product. Different detection technologies work best with certain applications.
