Public consultation on this risk analysis has closed. We are now reviewing your feedback.
Thank you for sharing your perspectives, ideas and research.
Your feedback will help inform our final equivalence assessment for high pressure processing of chicken meat.
Now that the public consultation is closed, we will:
- consider all feedback
- develop a final report.
We will then release the final report.
