Dr. Donald Zink and Dr. Gene Bartholomew hosted a live webinar to discuss the importance of in-process and finished product testing as a verification tool for food safety programs.
Virtually all food processors and manufacturers conduct sampling and testing of finished products prior to shipment, and many tests in process material as well. The webinar will primarily discuss presence-absence testing for pathogens and allergens. Customers often require finished product testing and, in some cases, these test requirements may be unreasonable or ineffective. We will discuss strategies for developing effective specifications with suppliers and customers.
