Inedible Egg Product (to Pasteurization or Landfill) Product Summary (from Premises without Poultry)

RISK ASSESSMENT

The risk assessment for moving inedible egg product (to pasteurization or landfill) from premises without poultry is negligible.

OVERVIEW

Inedible egg product (INEP) is dried, frozen or liquid egg product that is unfit for human consumption.
INEP may be generated from: inedible and loss eggs, recovery of liquid from the eggshells after egg breaking, recovery of liquids from the processing lines and equipment between production runs and other sources of eggs that are unfit for human consumption. INEP originating from a premises without poultry in an HPAI Control Area moving to a landfill or in tankers to a pasteurization facility represents a negligible risk, provided that the permit requirements below have been met.INEP moving from premises without poultry to pasteurization or a landfill may move within or out of the Control Area by permit.

REQUIRED FOR PERMIT
  • Traceability information (premises ID, GPS coordinates, or other)
  • Truck and driver biosecurity
  • Premises’ (standalone processing plant) biosecurity measures are acceptable to State and/or Federal officials
  • Completed epidemiological assessment (for premises of origin), with no indication of dangerous contacts with Infected Premises
TRUCK AND DRIVER BIOSECURITY DETAILS
  • The driver should remain inside the cab of the vehicle. If the driver gets out of the vehicle, the cab interior must be cleaned and disinfected, and the driver must wear protective clothing, such as disposable boots and gloves, and remove them before getting back in the cab
  • The tires and wheel wells (of the truck hauling INEP) must be cleaned and disinfected before leaving
    the premises of origin within the Control Area

Inedible Egg Product (to Pasteurization) Product Summary (from Premises with Poultry)

RISK ASSESSMENT

The risk assessment for moving inedible egg product (to pasteurization or landfill) from premises with poultry is low.

OVERVIEW

Inedible egg product (INEP) is dried, frozen or liquid egg product that is unfit for human consumption. INEP may be generated from: inedible and loss eggs, recovery of liquid from the eggshells after egg breaking, recovery of liquids from the processing lines and equipment between production runs and other sources of eggs that are unfit for human consumption. Liquid INEP originating from a premises with poultry in an HPAI Control Area moving to a pasteurization facility represent a low risk, provided that permit requirements below have been met. INEP from premises with poultry to pasteurization may move within or out of the Control Area by permit. 

REQUIRED FOR PERMIT
  • Traceability information (premises ID, GPS coordinates, or other)
  • Normal flock production parameters
  • Truck and driver biosecurity
  • Product-specific biosecurity
  • Premises’ (farm of origin) biosecurity measures are acceptable to State and/or Federal officials
  • Completed epidemiological assessment (for premises of origin), with no indication of dangerous contacts
    with Infected Premises
  • For egg breaking premises with poultry onsite, two negative RRT-PCR results are required before the first movement (each result is one 5-bird or 11-bird pool sample per 50 dead birds from each house on the premises). After the first movement (on subsequent days) one negative RRT-PCR result is required (one 5-bird or 11-bird pool sample per 50 dead birds from each house on the premises)
  • If all the above are true, a permit can be issued to move INEP from a premises with poultry to pasteurization after two negative RRT-PCR results for the first movement and one negative RRT-PCR result for all subsequent movements, with one negative RRT-PCR result within 24 hours prior to movement
TRUCK AND DRIVER BIOSECURITY DETAILS
  • The exterior of the vehicle moving INEP is cleaned and disinfected before entering the destination premises
  • If the tanker is destined to a premises with poultry after delivering INEP, then the interior and exterior of the vehicle is cleaned and disinfected
  • The driver should remain inside the cab of the vehicle. If the driver gets out of the vehicle, the cab interior must be cleaned and disinfected and the driver must wear protective clothing such as disposable boots, gloves, and remove them before getting back in the cab
  • The tires and wheel wells (of the truck hauling INEP) must be cleaned and disinfected before leaving the premises of origin within the Control Area
PRODUCT-SPECIFIC BIOSECURITY
  •  INEP can only move to a plant where it is pasteurized according to the USDA FSIS standards for inactivating Salmonella in whole egg, or whole egg blends, depending on the percent of non-egg ingredients as described in 9 CFR 90.570
  •  If carboys are used in the transport of INEP they must be:
      1. destroyed at the final destination, or
      2. cleaned and sanitized (following accepted procedures) and returned to the premises of origin without contacting materials going to other premises
