Registration is now open for the AMI Foundation’s popular Advanced Listeria monocytogenes Intervention and Control Workshop in November.

The workshop is scheduled for November 9-10, 2010, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare in Chicago, Illinois.

This updated educational opportunity is designed to help manufacturers of ready-to-eat (RTE) meat and meat products examine the issues surrounding control methods and to provide experience in developing appropriate sanitation protocols and testing plans for processing RTE products.  In addition to assuring optimal product safety and implementing best practices for RTE process, the workshop offers a key benefit: helping to assure compliance.

Attendees will benefit from interaction with leading experts who have decades of experience in RTE production and sanitation, gain hands-on experience developing sanitation protocols and testing plans and learn how to successfully complete a routine risk-based Listeria monocytogenes sampling  (RLm) and food safety assessment.

Registration is limited to 60 participants to ensure a quality learning experience.
