AFIA Salmonella Control Webcasts

AFIA has organized two educational webcasts this spring that are  designed to help feed industry personnel better understand how to control and manage Salmonella.
Members of the American Feed Industry Association’s Pet Food Committee are finalizing written guidance on options for controlling Salmonella, which is considered an adulterant when found in pet foods. Discoveries of Salmonella in finished pet food can lead to product recalls.
Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine has an ongoing Salmonella surveillance program to identify the presence of this bacteria in feed and ingredients, as well as pet food. This effort, along with potential enactment of legislation this year concerning food and feed safety, means this topic is receiving greater attention from the feed industry.
Controlling Salmonella in Your Facility
March 23, 2010, 2 to 4:30 p.m. EDT
Speakers:  Dr. Frank Jones, professor emeritus of the University of Arkansas, Dr. Dale Hill, ADM Alliance Nutrition, Inc. and Jarrod Kersey, AFIA Pet Food Committee liaison.
This webcast will review general guidance on reducing incidences of Salmonella in your facility. Pet food, feed and ingredient manufacturers will benefit from the materials assembled by the committee. Expect a review of the practical steps that may be taken"from receiving to finished products"and time to ask questions.

This webcast will focus on management considerations for Salmonella control policies.

Examples include the CVM’s Salmonella/microbial policies, the Reportable Food Registry, sampling and testing, supplier contracts and matters related to potential recalls. Expect time to ask questions too.
