In the public meeting, IFSAC will report on work to develop harmonized foodborne illness source attribution estimates, as well as other analyses IFSAC has undertaken since its formation in 2011. The Meat Institute's Vice President of Scientific Affairs Betsy Booren, Ph.D., will also provide comments during the meeting.
