Workshop: Control of Listeria monocytogenes in Ready-to-Eat Meat and Poultry Products

FSIS held five interactive workshops to help small and very small plants prepare for the interim final rule "Control of Listeria monocytogenes in Ready-to-Eat Meat and Poultry Products." The provisions of the rule, which were implemented on October 6, 2003, require official establishments that produce certain ready-to-eat (RTE) meat and poultry products to take additional steps to control product adulteration from Listeria monocytogenes.

The workshops were held on the following dates:
  • Sep 13, 2003: Raleigh, NC and Bridgeport, CT
  • Sep 20, 2003: Kansas City, KS
  • Oct 4, 2003: Albuquerque, NM and Oakland, CA

FSIS is making the agenda and workshop presentations available to small and very small plants as a means of assisting them to comply with the regulation. Small and very small plants can also contact the FSIS Technical Service Center at 1-800-233-3935 or the Strategic Initiatives, Partnerships and Outreach Staff at (202) 690-6520 with any questions.
