AMIF L.m. Control Workshop Sells Out With 60 Attendees

Monday, November 6, 2000

AMIF's "Implementing Listeria Intervention and Control Workshop," held last week in Cincinnati, OH, drew 60 members of the industry, bringing the total of industry members trained through this program to 120. Both workshops have been sold out and were highly rated by attendees.

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.

The 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.
