The Chilled Food Association has published updated guidance documents for the monitoring and management of Listeria monocytogenes which may be of interest to members of the UK Food Safety Research Network.
The guidance sets out effective environmental hygiene management using monitoring and preventative and corrective actions and how to interpret this data and relate it to other results from raw materials, components and product. This gives much-needed detail to support good hygiene practice, particularly for SMEs and for enforcement not only by Competent Authorities but also commercially, e.g. by FBOs buying ready-to-eat ingredients from suppliers and for final product retail customers.
