Aggregate Salmonella Categorization of Raw Chicken Parts, NRTE Comminuted Poultry, Young Chicken Carcass and Young Turkey Carcass Establishments Using Moving Windows

Reporting period for this data: October 29, 2017 through October 27, 2018​ | Download in Excel | PDF 

  • Summary information is intended to provide industry and other stakeholders timely updates about progress being made to reduce contamination in poultry.
  • Only establishments in which the minimum number of samples has been analyzed or the maximum number of positives was exceeded in one or more completed moving windows are included in these aggregate categories and the totals.
  • Establishments that produce 1,000 lbs. or less of each product per day, or slaughter 20,000 head or fewer of each species per year, are not included.
  • Differences in the total number of establishments listed for Salmonella in the aggregate tables are due to establishments that did not have enough samples for a specific pathogen in any moving window to be categorized.
  • Category definitions and contact information are presented after the tables.

NOTE: On Aug. 27, 2018, as announced in the Constituent Update, FSIS began testing all raw poultry samples using the enrichment method to detect Campylobacter and has discontinued assessing whether establishments meet the current Campylobacter performance standards. FSIS will continue to share individual Campylobacter sampling results directly with establishments using existing mechanisms but has temporarily discontinued posting aggregate category results on the FSIS website until sufficient data are generated with the new method and new Campylobacter performance standards are in place.

Category Definitions

  • Category 1: Establishments that have achieved 50 percent or less of the maximum allowable percent positive during the most recent completed 52-week moving window.
  • Category 2: Establishments that meet the maximum allowable percent positive but have results greater than 50 percent of the maximum allowable percent positive during the most recent completed 52-week moving window.
  • Category 3: Establishments that have exceeded the maximum allowable percent positive during the most recent completed 52-week moving window.

NA: FSIS did not collect or analyze the minimum number of samples to categorize the establishment and the establishment has not exceeded the maximum number of positives allowed under the standard.
