Food Safety Tech Hazards Series: Listeria
June 7 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The CDC estimates that nearly 48 million people fall ill and 3000 people die annually as a result of foodborne illness. Listeria is a concern due to the high percentage of fatalities that occur as a result of contracting Listeriosis. Many of these cases are preventable. During this virtual event, experts will discuss tangible best practices in Listeria detection, mitigation, and control.
In this webinar TAG’s Vice President of Regulatory and Scientific Affairs, Dr. Ben Miller, will present the session: Continued Complexity of Monitoring and Controlling Listeria Monocytogenes. In 2017, the FDA released draft guidance for the control of Listeria monocytogenes in Ready-To-Eat (RTE) food. Since then, the food industry has continued to experience outbreaks of this pathogen, sometimes coming from new and novel sources. This presentation will discuss some of the more complex issues around L. mono monitoring and control, including food-contact surface testing, emerging detection technologies, and when it might make sense to genetically sequence L. mono found in your facilities.
