Samples undergo timely and efficient microbiological testing for the presence of pathogens to ensure facilities are meeting federal requirements.  This confirms that meat products are processed in a wholesome manner and ensures a safe food supply of meat.  Samples for raw and trim meats are tested within 24 hours.  Samples of ready to eat meats are tested within 48 hours.

Graphs show the Percentage of Sample Microbiology/Meat Testing Results Obtained Within 24 to 48 Hours of Receipt for FY13 through FY17 and FY18 by Quarter

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
