Abstract

We report here on a certification pilot study using an on-farm auditing system to document good production practices for swine relative to the risk of exposure to Trichinella spiralis. Based on the results, improvements in the program have been made and further piloting of the program is being undertaken prior to launching the Trichinae Certification Program in the United States. The Trichinella certification mechanism will establish a process for ensuring the quality and safety of animal-derived food products from the farm through slaughter.
