Workshop for retail food industry to plan for recalls and outbreaks
The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is hosting the event, Industry Foodborne Illness Investigation Training and Recall Response (I-FIIT-RR), on January 8 at the Emergency Operations Center in Texas.
Topics will include recognizing the most common foodborne illnesses, control measures and best practices for restaurants, responding to a recall and preparing a plan, communicating with customers, health departments and media and requirements of state and local regulatory agencies.
Retail food operators can minimize risk by planning before an incident so they know where to find help if there is a foodborne illness outbreak or food-product recall, said NEHA.
The workshop, which is free but requires registration, is in partnership with the Food and Drug Administration and is sponsored by the City of Plano, Texas.
