Listeria Video Available

Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, December 20, 2006

The Association of Food and Drug Officials, an organization of regulatory officials, is making a video available at no charge called Control of Listeria Monocytogenes in Retail Establishments.

Produced by the The Department of Food Science at Penn State, the program is heavy on the deli side but valuable for all perishable departments. The Pundit thinks it underemphasizes the risk on raw produce, especially processed product, almost defining “Ready to Eat” as deli products.

The truth is that concern over this pathogen is one of the major obstacles on fresh-cut fruit programs. It is a nasty bug too. It is estimated that 20% of the people who get Listeriosis die from it.

The video is available in English or Spanish, you can view it right here.
