The proposed process for authorising the delayed evisceration and partial evisceration of poultry in FSA approved poultry slaughterhouses

About this consultation

Consultation audience

This consultation will be of interest to FSA approved poultry slaughterhouses for all poultry species and other interested stakeholders.

Consultation purpose

To provide stakeholders with the opportunity to comment on proposals to authorise Food Business Operators (FBOs) in FSA approved slaughterhouses to carry out both delayed and partial evisceration of poultry.

Stakeholders may wish to consider the following points when reading through and responding:

  • Do you agree with the FSA proposals regarding the authorisation of establishments for delayed evisceration poultry production?
  • Do you agree with the FSA proposals regarding the authorisation of establishments for partial evisceration or effilé poultry production?
  • The costs to industry are deemed to be negligible however, we would welcome stakeholder opinions on the impact on FBO’s of implementing these procedures on a formal basis.
