The notice re-issues content from FSIS Notice 66-08 and advises inspection programme personnel (IPP) that even though most raw meat and poultry products are subject to Salmonella testing, there is a narrow set of circumstances in which sampling is not warranted.

As the notice states, if an establishment processes all its products into ready-to-eat (RTE) product or moves all its raw products for further processing into RTE product at another federally inspected establishment, the establishment is to be excluded from the Salmonella verification testing programme schedule.
