Food Standards Scotland is required under EU food law to charge businesses for the delivery of all meat official controls work carried out by Meat Hygiene Inspectors and Official Veterinarians in slaughterhouses in Scotland. This work is essential to ensure that meat entering the food chain is safe for human consumption, and that animals are treated in accordance with strict animal welfare standards.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) today published the second set of results from the third year of their survey of campylobacter contamination on fresh chickens at retail. Campylobacter is the biggest cause of food poisoning in Scotland, and research has indicated that 55-75% of human cases in Scotland are associated with chicken. Reducing the levels of campylobacter infection is therefore a priority for Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and we have been working closely with the FSA to promote action by producers and retailers to reduce the levels of contamination in UK-produced chicken.
