Food Safety and Inspection Service is co-sponsoring a public meeting
with the Food and Drug Administration on June 23 in Washington about a
recently initiated interagency risk assessment of the public health
impact of foodborne listeria in some ready-to-eat foods that are
sliced, prepared or packaged in retail facilities.
The purpose of the meeting is to determine the effect on public health
where current practices and potential interventions reduce or prevent listeria
contamination in RTE foods.
More information, including an agenda for the meeting, will be posted
on the FSIS
