IDFA to offer new webinar: Pathogen Environmental Monitoring and Control – The Road to Success

Jun 20, 2019
Edith Wilkin, vice president and fellow of food safety, Leprino Foods Company, is one of three featured presenters.

IDFA will host an important food safety webinar next month for members and others across the dairy industry on the critical need for dairy plants of all sizes to design and implement robust monitoring and control programs to find and eliminate pathogens in vulnerable food production areas.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and state regulators continue to ramp up preventive control inspections, conduct swab-a-thons and find concerns. In addition, FDA is using whole genome sequencing to establish links between strains of pathogens found in plant environments and illnesses, leading to regulatory action that could damage consumer trust and company brands.

Join IDFA and leading experts in the field to discuss the legal and regulatory ramifications and the “how-to’s” of putting together an effective environmental monitoring and control program to help protect your customers and brand. IDFA will host the webinar, "Pathogen Environmental Monitoring and Control – The Road to Success,"  on Tuesday, July 16, 2-3:30 p.m. Eastern time.
