The North American Meat Processors Association announced a new webinar on all aspects of FSIS E. coli policy, including the “big 6” non-O157 STECS, E. coli O157:H7, and the pending HACCP validation guidance document on Nov. 15 at 2 pm EST. Dr. Dan Engeljohn, Assistant Administrator for the FSIS Office of Policy and Program Development, is the presenter.

This is the first major FSIS event with the industry since FSIS announced it would designate the “big 6” non-O157 STEC’s as adulterants – and since it released the review of its revised HACCP validation guidance document by the National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection (NACMPI).

The webinar is co-hosted by the 12 organizations that co-sponsored the NAMP E. coli conference in Chicago: American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP), the American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF), the American Meat Science Association (AMSA), the Chicago Mid-West Meat Association (CMMA), the Canadian Meat Council (CMC), the Eastern Meat Packers Association (EMPA), the International HACCP Alliance (IHA), the National Meat Association (NMA), the Southeastern Meat Association (SEMA), the Southwest Meat Association (SMA), the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF), and the Beef Industry Food Safety Council (BIFSCo).
