Abstract

See full text

A method for rapidly cooling poultry carcasses during processing by injecting the carcasses with a composition including water and an antimicrobial agent. The composition may be in slush ice form or liquid form. The antimicrobial agent, such as peroxide, plays a critical role in this method. The antimicrobial agent serves to lower the freezing point of the chilled water of the composition below 32 degrees F., which allows greater heat exchange when the chilled water composition is injected into the warm interior of the carcasses. The antimicrobial agent also prevents bacterial contamination of the carcasses as a result of the possible transfer of bacteria from the exterior surface of the carcasses into the interior of the carcasses during injection.
