Insta Cool Seeks to Use Plasma Gear to Freeze Chickens

October 16, 1987

Insta Cool Inc. of North America said it is seeking Food and Drug Administration approval to enter the $250-million-a-year market for frozen chickens with technology it now uses to freeze blood plasma.

Insta Cool, a development-stage company in Anaheim, said it has applied to the FDA for permission to market its product to freeze whole chickens sealed in bags--which represent about about 20% of the chicken market.

If it wins its current request, Insta Cool plans to seek approval to enter the uncovered chicken market, according to Jim Malloy, a spokesman for the company.

The FDA, which gave the company permission in March to market its cooling process for blood plasma, is expected to reach a decision by early next year, Malloy said.
