Food Safety Forum on Aug. 16
The 12th Annual Commissioner’s Food Safety Forum will be held Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Expo Center at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
The forum will focus on Whole Genome Sequencing technology and how using its basic foodborne pathogen identification during foodborne illness outbreaks may help reduce those outbreaks in the future. Other topics will be the sanitary transportation of food - an important step in ensuring the public has access to a safe and abundant food supply - and preparing for the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act through an on-farm readiness review.
The forum, sponsored by Harris Teeter and Temperature Control Solutions, is free and lunch will be provided. Participants are asked to register to ensure an accurate lunch count. Go to www.ncagr.gov/ncfoodsafetyforum/registration.htm to register.
