AutoJet Food Safety Spray Systems Help Ensure Food Safety in Meat and Poultry Processing

Precise Delivery of Antimicrobial Agents onto Products or into Packages Provides Cost-Effective Pathogen Control

AutoJet Food Safety Spray Systems: Overview

AutoJet Food Safety Spray Systems help processors of ready-to-eat and fresh meats ensure product safety, increase productivity and reduce chemical use by eliminating slower, more expensive post-pasteurization techniques.

The automated spray system applies a predetermined volume of antimicrobial agent into packages or onto meat before sealing. Vacuum-sealing of the packages distributes the antimicrobial evenly around the product. Using this technology, processors have achieved Alt-2 from $0.01/lb for RTE products to as low as $0.015/lb for fresh meats.


  • SLIC® (Sprayed Lethality in Container) process efficacy has been established by the USDA/ARS
  • AutoJet Food Safety Spray Systems have a proven track record in controlling pathogens including E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes
  • Monitored control ensures precise and consistent application of antimicrobial with minimal waste
  • Reductions of 1.5 to 4 logs in RTE meats and 1.5 to 2 logs for fresh meats are typical
  • Flexible operation – various shot sizes and timing intervals can be pre-programmed for automatic batch changes
  • Easy integration into plant HACCP, GMPs and SSOPs

Ideal for:

  • Bagged whole muscle products
  • Hot dogs, links and formed products
  • Fresh meats – subprimals and trims
  • Pre-packaged poultry
  • Sliced, mixed, tumbled and blended meat and poultry
