AMSA Co-Sponsors Webinar with Dr. Dan Engeljohn on “Big 6” non-O157 STECS’s, E. coli O157, and HACCP Validation
AMSA is co-sponsoring a new and major 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.
AMSA member Dr. Dan Engeljohn, Assistant Administrator for the FSIS Office of Policy and Program Development, is the presenter of the webinar, which is on Nov. 15 at 2 pm EST / 11 am PST.
The North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP) organized the webinar.
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).
It is free to all registered attendees of NAMP’s 2011 E. coli Conference for Beef Further Processors, held in Chicago on Aug 17 – 18.
Other AMSA members may register at the member rate of $59. The non-member rate is $89. A $10 late fee will be charged after Nov. 10.

American Meat Science Association (AMSA ), American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP), the American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF), 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).
