Preventing Listeria: A Practical Workshop on Food Safety Controls

April 25, 2018 | 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

CIFT, in partnership with Savour Food Safety International is excited to offer you a unique workshop on Listeria. In 2018, there have already been numerous recalls due to post-lethal contamination of food products with listeria monocytogenes. Efforts to prevent contamination must be conducted at all levels of production by trained staff. This is a difficult task given that L. monocytogenes is so widespread in the environment. Building a robust Listeria Control Program to aid in preventing food safety events rather than reacting to problems after they occur is a good business investment.

This workshop will provide practical guidelines for preventing contamination with L. monocytogenes, including controls directed toward preventing contamination of product surfaces and preventing the establishment and growth of the organism in niches in the food processing/preparation environment.

Highlights of this workshop will include:

  • Overview of Listeria, outbreaks and root causes
  • Practical guidelines to follow to implement Contamination Control
  • Developing pre-requisite programs that support HACCP & FSMA

This workshop is designed for professionals looking to better understand root causes of listeria contamination, individuals who want practical knowledge of how to build effective listeria control, and companies looking to mitigate contamination risks as they grow and expand.
