Environmental Monitoring Program: An Early Warning System Webinar
Have microbiological hazards been haunting your dreams? Join us online as we dive in to a challenge many food plants face - environmental monitoring. AIB's expert food microbiologist, Kantha Channaiah, will spill the secrets of developing and managing an effective environmental monitoring program (EMP) capable of identifying and eliminating pathogen harborage sites, unsanitary practices, and operational procedures that can lead to microbial cross-contamination.
Your team will learn how to:
- Establish sampling zones
- Use indicator microorganisms
- Determine sampling frequencies, tools and methods
- Set a baseline and target
- Assign corrective actions for positive swabs
- Document results
Environmental monitoring is instrumental in reducing the risks of cross-contamination and product recalls. Required under Part 117 of the Food Safety Modernization Act, EMP affects the entire ready-to-eat food chain. FDA's guidance document on Listeria monocytogens (released January 2017) clearly proves that the FDA is more focused on an effective EMP implementation in food manufacturing facilities than ever before.
Register today to learn how to implement an effective EMP, interpret the results, and take appropriate corrective actions.
