In addition a comprehensive agenda
about Listeria control techniques, the
workshop’s breakout sessions provided an
excellent opportunity for small groups with
common product lines to interact and share
knowledge. Speakers emphasized preventing the
establishment of Listeria in the
environment through sanitary design of
facilities and equipment as well as sanitation
practices. Industry experts led participants
in developing sampling programs to assess
control, responses to potential issues and
assessing corrective measures.
workshop was planned by an ad hoc group
representing the Scientific Affairs and
Inspection Committees. The next workshop is
slated for March 2001 in Memphis. Two
additional workshops are being planned
throughout 2001 to accommodate the strong
demand for this type of training.
