IDFA to Launch New Webinar on Establishing Sampling Plans

Sep 10, 2014
Jeffrey Kornacki, Ph.D.,

Under the Food Safety Modernization Act, the Food and Drug Administration will increasingly scrutinize the food industry’s use of microbiological sampling plans and specifications for ingredients and finished products. IDFA has teamed with Jeffrey Kornacki, Ph.D., a renowned food microbiologist, to offer a webinar that will help members establish statistically sound, science-based and risk-based microbiological criteria for dairy products.

The webinar, “Principles for Establishing Sampling Plans for Ingredients and Finished Products,” will be held October 23, noon to 2:00 p.m. Eastern time. Registration is now open.

Dr. Kornacki has extensive experience with troubleshooting microbiological issues for the food industry, including work with a wide range of dairy products. During the webinar, he will present the microbiological and statistical principles for developing criteria and sampling plans. He also will explain the steps companies need to follow to establish robust programs for incoming ingredients and finished products.
