Product Description

Complying with the FDA’s New Import Mandates and Steps You Should Take to Prepare Yourself

FDA has declared a full-rage war on Listeria Monocytogenes (“Listeria”), armed with new expansive powers given to it under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in the food processing environment. Regardless of whether FDA conducts an FSMA inspection or a broader investigation in foodborne illness – FDA will begin to sample your facility extensively to find Listeria and other pathogens. Are you doing all you can to find out and control this pathogen in your environment? If not, there are good chances that the FDA might shut you down. Join this session by expert speaker Shawn K. Stevens to stay ahead of the FDA’s new Listeria mandates, and what you must do now to protect yourself.

You will learn about the FDA’s emerging policy view of the food safety hazards of listeria monocytogenes. You will also get the know how to assess your food processing operations to identify, eliminate and control the spread of listeria monocytogenes and other pathogens in the food processing environment. The session will also discuss how to develop and implement an environmental microbiological testing program that will not only satisfy FDA scrutiny but also protect your company and brand.

Session Highlights:

  • Learn about the FDA’s evolving expectations with respect to management of listeria monocytogenes and other pathogens in the food processing environment.
  • Learn about the specific FSMA regulations which FDA will use, govern and enforce to control environmental pathogens in the food processing environment.
  • Learn about the types of aggressive environmental microbiological sampling FDA will conduct inside your facilities during the FDA’s next inspection.
