Sanitation Standards


A person claiming the exemption of OAR 603-028-0730 (On-Farm Direct Sale Exemption) will be exempt from the requirements of ORS 619.026 (Meat preparation establishment sanitation requirements) and OAR 603-028-0100 (Buildings) if the poultry slaughter and processing are conducted on the person’s poultry business premises, under sanitary standards, practices, and procedures that produce poultry products that are sound, clean, and fit for human food (not adulterated).


The slaughter facility must be reasonably protected from potential contaminants such as dust, mud, pests and all other adulterants. The protection can be as minimal as a combination of tarps, canopies and floor mats.
