Résumé

Within HACCP systems the carcass cooling process needs to be monitored and verified. This study assessed the usefulness of the temperature-function integration technique (TFIT) for the verification of the hygienic adequacy of the cooling processes for beef carcasses. The cooling process passes carcasses through a spray cooler for at least 17 h and a holding cooler for at least 7 h. The TFIT is faster and cheaper than culture methods. Comparisons were made between TFIT and usual bacterial counts. Results show that the TFIT (with lag) can be considered convenient and appropiate for the inspection service to verify HACCP systems for carcass cooling process.
