bacterial contamination of carcasses. Visible contamination results in expensive and time-consuming reprocessing of carcasses and edible offal condemnation,
while undetected contamination can lead to even more
expensive product recalls.    
While some researchers find significant contamination occurs at evisceration, others find minimal bacterial

levels and these differences have been attributed to
process management. With that in mind, consider the
following tips for good evisceration: 

Remove feed from birds
8 to 12 hours prior to slaughter
Although not directly a part of evisceration, proper
fasting of birds prior to slaughter is critical for good
