Event Description

Use the Right Intervention Strategies to Mitigate Food Contamination Risk

Current efforts to prevent food contamination rely heavily on detection of microbial pathogens. However, “not detected” is not necessarily a “negative”, but is associated only to the portion of the product tested, since microbial contaminants are heterogeneously distributed and often at low levels. If you rely on such faulty statistics, your conclusions are likely to be erroneous.

Learn how to tackle this critical issue in this one-of-a-kind webinar by industry expert Michael Brodsky. Brodsky will address the need to shift your efforts to prevention of food contamination and/or the use of appropriate intervention strategies to mitigate the risk, rather than the current efforts which rely so heavily on detection of microbial pathogens. He will explain the difference between a ‘not detected” and a negative report; the significance of heterogeneous distribution, as well as of infectious dose in assessing the microbiological safety of food.

After attending this webinar, you will be in a better position to mitigate food contamination risk through the use of appropriate intervention strategies.
