FSIS to Host Webinar on Listeria Controls at Retail

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

(North American Meat Institute)

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) will conduct a webinar on January 13, 2016, at 1:00 pm ET to discuss how to control Listeria in the retail environment. The webinar is specifically designed for foodservice retail operators that maintain in-house delicatessens and will discuss the updated “FSIS Best Practices Guidance for Controlling Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) in Retail Delicatessens,” which provides specific recommendations for actions retailers can take in the deli area to control Lm contamination of ready-to-eat meat and poultry products. FSIS also will discuss its launch of a year-long nationwide pilot project to assess whether retailers are using the recommendations in its “Best Practices Guidance for Controlling Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) in Retail Delicatessens.” As part of the pilot project, FSIS Compliance Investigators will complete a questionnaire on whether retailers are following specific recommendations from the guidance. To participate in the webinar, RSVP to Evelyn Gomez at evelyn.gomez@fsis.usda.gov. For additional details on the webinar, including access information, click here.
