This workshop focuses on the challenge of controlling Listeria monocytogenes in order to produce a safe, nutritious product. The Foundation for Meat & Poultry Research & Education has worked with experts across the industry to develop a learning experience tailored to meet those challenges. This year’s workshop will include an off-site afternoon at a nearby associate member and other program updates will be implemented.  Discussion topics will continue to focus on sanitation, equipment design, corrective actions, sampling plans and data analysis.  Sponsorships and exhibits are available for this conference.
