Abstract

In September 2005, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA, FSIS) contracted with RTI International to conduct an analysis of food safety performance in meat and poultry slaughter establishments using available FSIS data sets.1 RTI developed a work plan for the project that incorporated comments and input from FSIS on the needs for the analysis. Based on the tasks outlined in the work plan, we conducted the analyses described in this report.
