Biosecurity Resources for Packers

Packing plant employees, truck drivers, and others who contact animals or their bodily fluids must observe proper biosecurity protocols to avoid transmitting the FMD, CSF, or ASF virus to susceptible animals when these individuals leave the plant. All personnel must be instructed on biosecurity steps to follow prior to and after leaving the plant.

The North American Meat Institute (NAMI) has foreign animal disease guidance documents, including biosecurity measures for packers available on the NAMI Foreign Animal Disease webpage.
