MICROBIAL CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL CHANGES IN MEAT AND POULTRY DURING SHIPPING
Product quality is a complex interaction of many factors, which can be significantly influenced by improper storage of perishable meat and poultry. Improved sanitation and packaging practices in recent years have resulted in higher quality products available to the consumer. The maintenance of this quality is the responsibility of personnel involved in shipping and handling of these perishable commodities. Good temperature control and handling practices can minimize spoilage due to microbial growth and fat oxidation, as well as guard against food poisoning organisms.
