The pros and cons of controlled
atmosphere stunning
Controlled atmosphere stunning is coming to the poultry industry.
One expert explained the pros and cons of the new process and
reinforced fundamentals for conventional stunning.
AUSTIN ALONZO

Slaughter innovations like
gas stunning may eliminate
unnecessary pain and suffering
for broilers and make the lives
of processing facility workers
easier, but getting the job done
correctly will always require
close attention to detail.
Penny Lawlis, a consultant
with Professional Livestock
Auditing Inc., offered a preview of technologies shaping
the future of livestock slaughter and reinforced fundamentals of conventional stunning
as part of the North American
Meat Institute's Animal Care
and Handling Conference on
October 19, 2017, in Kansas
City, Missouri. Lawlis, who
worked for the government
of Ontario, Canada, training
parties on humane slaughter
and animal welfare for more
than 30 years before going
into consulting, said the commitment to doing it right and
attention to all of the details is
the key to successful, humane
slaughter.

Proper stunning is essential to both animal welfare and the final
quality of the product. PicsFive | BigStockPhoto.com

Introduction to gas
stunning
The future of slaughter
may well include gas stunning systems. In this system,
birds are rendered insensible
by the use of gases like argon,
carbon dioxide or nitrogen.
Gas stunning, also called controlled atmosphere stunning
(CAS), is seeing increased use
as chicken producers commit to using the technology
at their slaughter facilities
and food companies commit
to purchasing chickens processed with CAS.

Perdue Foods began
operation of its first CAS
system at the end of 2017.
Tyson Foods launched a
pilot program for CAS at
two of its poultry facilities
in 2017. In October 2017,
McDonald's Corp. vowed to
source its chicken in the U.S.
and Canada from facilities
using CAS. A bevy of restaurants and food services
committed to the Global
Animal Partnership's welfare
standards are also pledging
to source chicken processed
with CAS, too.
