AMI Foundation Offers Workshop on Listeria monocytogenes Control in September

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Washington, DC, – The AMI Foundation is offering an educational workshop this September that will address one of the most relevant issues in the meat and poultry industry today: Listeria monocytogenes control.

The AMI Foundation Advanced Listeria monocytogenes Intervention and Control Workshop, co-sponsored by the Canadian Meat Council (CMC), will be held September 24-25, at The Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.

Every day, RTE manufacturers face the challenge of controlling Listeria monocytogenes in order to produce a safe, nutritious product. The AMI Foundation has worked with experts across the industry to develop a learning experience tailored to meet those challenges. From sanitation to corrective action and sampling plans to data analysis, Listeria control involves your whole team.

Not only does the Advanced Listeria monocytogenes Intervention and Control Workshop have presentations on the latest developments in Listeria control and real-life examples from people with plant experience, it features hands on breakout sessions and case studies designed to give you firsthand knowledge to use in your plant. In addition to assuring optimal product safety and implementing best practices for RTE process, the workshop offers a key benefit: helping to assure compliance.

Scheduled session topics include an introduction to listeriosis process control technology and principles; challenges of facility design; sanitary equipment design principles; understanding product risk and appropriate intervention; monitoring for process control; data analysis; process data management tools; investigation and corrective actions; and lot and line segregation. The workshop will also feature a number of case studies.

Space for the workshop is limited to 60 participants.  For more information and to register, go to www.meatinstitute.org/lmworkshop.
