Poultry processors around the world are busy slaughtering their own birds to meet the demands of consumers who demand quality and humane slaughter.
But in the US, the process involves killing birds that have not been properly sterilized, so there is no way to guarantee that the birds are sterile, according to experts.
A new study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives examines how poultry slaughter plants perform the necessary sterilization of birds before slaughtering them.
The study is one of the first to quantify how the US poultry industry performs its sterilization process, and it reveals some startling facts about the slaughter process.
For example, the study found that some slaughter plants sterilize birds that are in need of medical attention but still have blood on their feathers.
And while some poultry plants sterilized birds that were too sick to be processed, others did not sterilize those birds, according the study.
The authors note that the methods used to sterilize these birds may not be sustainable in the long term, since many people would not want to harvest or kill these birds.
They also note that many poultry processing plants have inadequate sanitation, which means that many of these birds will be contaminated with bacteria and pathogens.
The report also suggests that poultry processors are often unable to perform routine inspection, so they are not aware of the risks involved in processing poultry and the risks they face when handling birds that require special attention.
“We can’t just walk in and take a look at these animals,” said lead author and veterinarian Dr. Karen C. Ritchie, who is a research associate at the University of Illinois.
“It’s a complex process and it’s very hard to get an accurate picture of what’s going on in poultry processing facilities.”
The authors say that while there is an industry-wide consensus that chicken should be processed humanely, there is currently no national standard for what constitutes humane slaughter of poultry.
While the US is the world leader in poultry production, many other countries, including China, South Korea, Italy, Australia, Canada and Germany, do not use humane slaughter standards.
For this reason, poultry producers in these countries have developed a range of techniques to ensure that they are complying with humane slaughter regulations.
For instance, many countries have laws that require poultry processing plant managers to keep a complete record of all animal welfare and human health practices at all times.
In some countries, poultry processors also must report to the government the number of birds that they kill per day.
The US Food and Drug Administration has issued a guidance for the production of poultry products, which states that there is “no specific standard for the number or type of birds to be slaughtered per day.”
According to the guidance, the USDA is committed to “ensuring that all US poultry operations adhere to the national standard” for humane slaughter, but it is not yet available to the public.
The USDA does not require poultry processors to report how many birds they kill each day to the agency.
The agency also does not have a way to determine if a poultry plant is producing more birds than its maximum capacity, according a spokesperson for the USDA.
The lack of a national standard is one reason the US has the highest number of US poultry slaughter deaths per 100,000 animals per year, according CVS.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that the total number of U.S. poultry deaths in 2017 was over 7,400.
While there is widespread concern about the current state of poultry slaughter, many companies and consumers are taking the process of slaughtering birds to heart.
In 2016, for example, Consumers Union, an advocacy group, called on the poultry industry to stop killing birds in unsanitary conditions.
“Poultry industry executives who don’t want to engage with consumers are trying to avoid accountability,” said CVS Vice President for Corporate Affairs Chris Faraone.
“The chickens have to die.
There is no alternative.
The chicken industry is doing this with impunity, and consumers have no voice in this.”
Consumers Union and the Center for Responsible Technology have also been advocating for the right to know when birds are killed, as well as how poultry processing companies are making sure that they do not contaminate poultry with pathogens.
“For the poultry producers, the only reason to use a process that is inhumane is to make a profit,” said Fara1.
For the poultry processing industry, the number one goal is to ensure the safety of its employees, said CVC Vice President of Government Affairs Karen Crenshaw. “
But the industry has also been working to increase transparency about its slaughter practices, and the study shows that poultry plants have been working with the USDA to ensure they comply with all federal laws regarding humane slaughter procedures.
