How to create an effective
HACCP plan for shell egg plants
Implementing a hazard analysis and critical control points plan creates
a framework for a food safety program with continuous improvement.
KENNETH ANDERSON, ET AL.

H

azard analysis and critical control points
(HACCP) is a recognized preventative approach
method to support the production of a safe
product. Though not required for shell egg processing
plants, based on the insight gained from the most
recent shell egg recall, maybe it's time for a HACCP plan.
A shell egg HACCP plan has become more
complex than when they were originally envisioned.
There have been new regulatory requirements
including egg refrigeration, the egg safety plan, and
the fluid nature of inspections. The greatest changes

for shell egg processing relate to the risks that are due
to continually emerging pathogens and how they are
introduced to shell egg operations. These risks require
operations to conduct their own risk assessments in
addition to regulatory monitoring.
Developing a HACCP plan is one way to evaluate
risks in the production system. Egg temperature and
wash water temperature and pH play key roles in
reducing microbial growth in shell eggs, and a HACCP
plan can be used to tie all the regulatory requirements
and any additional identified risks into one safety plan.

Every operation should have a recall and traceability plan, sanitation standard operating procedures,
employee training records and pest control plan, along with any other prerequisite programs that may be
needed. It is important that employees understand the need for such procedures and records. Andrea Gantz
