The purpose of this assignment is to provide EFSA with the available data on the indicator organisms E. coli or Enterobacteriaceae as process hygiene indicators for the main livestock species. Based on this literature search, an experimental study in broiler slaughterhouses located in the EU should be designed and carried out to collect relevant data on these 2 indicator organisms. The ultimate aim is to support proposing PHC for evaluating process control in EU broiler slaughterhouses.
