US Poultry Processors Move Away From Chlorine Sanitizers.

April 15 2010 -- US poultry processors have already converted from using chlorine to alternative anti-microbials, an industry body has said.

The move comes as Russia and the US edge closer to a deal to resolve a trade dispute that has blocked US chicken exports. Russia banned US poultry imports on January 19 after saying a chlorine wash used routinely in US processing plants was in violation of its food safety standards..

Earlier this week Feedinfo News Service reported that U.S. poultry producers have agreed to stop using chlorine in processing products for exports to Russia, according to Russian media. Gennady Onishchenko, head of consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor, said: "We have been informed that American producers are switching to poultry meat production without using chlorine and that they want to restart exports to Russia as soon as possible."
