Understanding High Risk and High Care areas

in Food Safety Fridays Webinars
Added by Simon, 05 Jan 2020

Taking place 31 Jan 2020 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (Single Day Event)


Webinar Description

Where a site handles product susceptible to pathogen contamination, it is vital to understand the risks and implement effective controls that minimise this potential contamination. The terms ‘high-risk’ and ‘high-care’ define areas where chilled or frozen foods, which are particularly vulnerable to microbiological contamination, are handled. ‘Ambient high-care’ areas to reflect the lessons learned from outbreaks associated with a range of ambient products that had not previously been considered a concern, such as chocolate. The guidelines for defining products to be considered for processing in high-risk, high-care or ambient high-care areas are principally based on:

• the ability of the finished product to support the growth of pathogens (e.g. Listeria species)

• the survival of pathogens on the finished product that could subsequently grow during the normal storage or use of the product

• the protection that a food may provide to a pathogen
