Webinar to Help Small Scale Meat Processors With Food Safety

The Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network, which works to expand small-scale meat processing, will host a free webinar Feb. 1 on microbiology basics.

The webinar will delve into N-60 sampling, multi-drug resistance, non-O157 STECs and multi-drug resistant Salmonella strains, according to Meatingplace (subscription only), an industry publication.

“If you’re a meat processor, you pretty much have to know all this stuff,” says the event description. “And if you work with a meat processor, you should probably understand the basics so you know what your processor is up against.”

The free webinar will begin at 1 pm EST/10 am PST Feb 1 and will run 90 minutes. Penn State food scientists Catherine Cutter and Martin Bucknavage will give us a short tour of the basic microbiological terms meat processors – and their customers – need to understand.
