An Inside Look at U.S. Poultry Processing

USPOULTRY announces the release of a new video that provides a look at how chickens and turkeys are processed in the United States. The video takes a behind-the-scenes look at today's high-tech, highly efficient poultry processing plants and highlights the food safety and sanitation practices employed by the modern poultry industry.

Food production and safety is critical to maintaining the reputation of the U.S. poultry industry for consumer confidence and trust. Collectively, proper handling, interventions, sanitation and microbial testing all lead to improved food safety for chicken and turkey products.

Producing poultry for consumption is modern agriculture at its best and addresses the world demand for food that is safe and affordable. The poultry industry is proud to provide one of the safest and healthiest food options available to consumers and invites everyone to take a peek behind America's dynamic poultry processing industry.
