Rosenthal Meat Science and Technology Center

Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas

The Rosenthal Meat Science and Technology Center at Texas A&M University is posting its Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans as a service to the meat industry. On April 7, 2003, the Rosenthal Center's HACCP plans for Beef Slaughter; Raw, Not Ground Product; and Raw, Ground Product were reassessed for E. coli O157:H7 (PDF file) as requested by USDA/FSIS in the October 7, 2002, Federal Register Notice entitled E. coli O157:H7 Contamination of Beef Products (PDF file). Each of these three plans identified E. coli O157:H7 as a reasonably likely to occur hazard and the critical control points (CCPs) in place are designed to reduce the presence and to minimize the potential for growth. We reviewed the CCPs and critical limits and no changes were made based on this reassessment.

As part of our reassessment, we have developed and implemented a beef purchase specification program (PDF file) to address beef products that we purchase from outside establishments.

The HACCP plans listed below are in PDF form and require the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader. For more information about PDF, see the Adobe Acrobat Reader Page.

These plans should be used as teaching examples only. Each plant is responsible for performing all of the tasks associated with developing and implementing a HACCP plan for the various product categories it manufactures.

The Rosenthal Center HACCP Plans include the following processes:

In addition, the Rosenthal Center's Prerequisite Programs including good manufacturing practices (GMPs), standard operating procedures (SOPs), and sanitation standard operating procedures (SSOPs) are available for downloading.

Microsoft Word templates

The MS Word templates for our HACCP plans are also available. Your browser has to be able to recognize MS Word documents with ".word" as the suffix. Download these and use them as forms for your own HACCP documents.

For questions about these plans, please contact Jeff Savell at (979) 845-3935.
