The egg processing plant plays a significant role in the distribution of diseases, which is a melting pot, receiving eggs and equipment (pallets, racks, and flats) from multiple sources, all of which could potentially bring infectious diseases into the egg processing plant. Therefore, bio-security is very essential to managing an egg processing plant.
1. Separate pre-washed eggs from the finished egg product.
The separating clean and dirty activities must be developed, when we operate the egg processing plant from the perspective of resident flock protection, which brings the eggs into the incoming cooler and the disinfection equipment. The other viewpoint is separating the washed and sanitized eggs from all pre-washed activities, which allows the entire plant to be cleaned and disinfected overnight before the next day’s eggs are processed.
The egg processing plants receive and ship a variety of eggs and equipment, so all the equipment must be one-way disposable to keep the equipment and plant sanitary, such as egg plats, egg pallet, and egg racks and so on. For the egg flat, pallet and even truck and driver must be cleaned and sanitized before returning to the farm, because all surfaces of each equipment are directly exposed to contaminated and infected air unless the egg should be not by the plant.
3. Verification of the operating plan.
Government policies and procedures adhered to is necessary to pay attention, because which help to give the credit to the plan of operation, and also bring to the attention of management, problems, and weakness in day-to-day operations within the egg processing plant. The checklist, logs, and records are the ways to verifying the egg processing procedure, and the quality assurance sampling is used to verify the egg interior and exterior quality and microbial contamination.
4. Employee training program.
Employee training is essential to a functional bio-security program. If employees understand what bio-security is, why it is important and how they are an important part of it, they will be more likely to be motivated to follow the procedures. Frequent short training sessions will help keep their minds on bio-security. Holding interactive training sessions where employees have an opportunity to ask questions and provide.
5. Reducing microbial and water contamination.
Sanitizing rinse application is just one of the hurdles designed to diminish microbial eggshell contaminants, whatever the way shell eggs were washed, graded, and sorted. When eggs are rinsed into the washer, the washed water temperature and condition kill the microbial and keep the egg-washed clean without microbial contamination. The popular method to adopt is Salmonella in the egg processing process.
If you manage an egg processing machine, the above-mentioned is an important reference to accomplish reliable and continuous profits. But only if you choose the high-quality egg processing machine, especially egg washing machine and egg breaking machine for assuring bio-security of egg products.
