Beefxide®, Porkxide™ and Lambxide™ antimicrobial interventions have received approval from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for use as a non-food chemical in food processing facilities. These interventions are applied as a spray on all carcasses, primals, subprimals, cuts, trim and offal products, as well as unskinned livers. They are formulated from FDA-approved ingredients and all components of the formulas are generally recognized as safe (GRAS). The products are also suitable for use on products to be labeled as natural or organic. A recent study found that Beefxide was effective as an antimicrobial on ground beef produced from treated trim and did not negatively affect color or flavor.
