Event Description

May 06, Tuesday 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

This pathogen control training will discuss implementation of GMPs, Environment testing, HACCP and design programs to prevent Foodborne illness.

Why Should You Attend:

Preventing Foodborne illness is the primary function of the Pathogen Control Program. Foodborne illnesses and Class 1 FDA recalls have increased in magnitude and frequency in recent years. While product sampling may drive the majority of the smaller recalls, consumer illnesses, and rising awareness are leading to higher reporting rates from both consumers and physicians. Many of these contacts also result in recalls. From peanut butter, pistachios and produce to breakfast cereal, more and more products that were unlikely suspects are being cited as sources of pathogen vehicles.

Suppliers must implement environmental testing, good manufacturing practices (GMPs), HACCP and design programs to eliminate the introduction and growth of these harmful and potentially deadly bacteria in the food chain. Strategies to achieve these important goals will be discussed in this webinar.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

• The Organisms of general concern in foodborne illnesses and their most common food and environmental sources.
• How HACCP validation plays a critical role in ensuring pathogens are eliminated.
• Programs that are most influential in the control of pathogen contamination.
• The role test and release or verification programs play in defending foodborne illness claims.

• Customers who want to understand best practices that they should require of their suppliers will benefit
