    It occurred to me that many people may not have a copy of the food code. This is the 2009 food code. It is fully searchable in pdf format.

    It resides on my servers, you can download it or just refer to it when you need it.

    I am working on the fda and FSIS postings as well.

    Biggest change for me is the new danger zone 41 F to 134 F.

    Moderators move this to whereever you feel it needs to be, I could not post it in food safety.

    The new study show the activity levels of the pathogens are affected greatly above the 130 F level. So they set it 5 degrees above because fo the variation in temp probes. The food code is pliable, in that you can effect a change, I have on salt cured country hams, I had my HACCP protocol for making imitation Serrano Ham approved. Hopefully our land grant will pick it up in 2011 and eventually country hams will be recognized as a completely documented legal method.

    The chart.
