Food safety webinar preview: Listeria results in just one hour

Imagine a food processing plant. Operations grind to a halt — there’s been a positive Listeria result. The downtime will be costly, as the team launches into a time-consuming seek-and-destroy and vectoring plan. Each hour that ticks by is one hour of product shelf life.

The story is oft-told. And across the globe, the number of reported positive results and recalls due to Listeria has increased. Processors are in turn increasing their efforts to eradicate harborage sites — a survey conducted just last year by Food Safety Magazine indicated noted Listeria as the “fastest growing” category of environmental monitoring.

Increased testing requires increased testing speed. With conventional methods taking 48–72 hours to provide results, testing systems that offer answers quickly — as in, within a single shift — become key for facilities setting their sights on reduced downtime and greater efficiency in seeking and destroying.

Food safety professionals are invited to join Neogen for a free webinar demo of Listeria Right Now, the first environmental sanitation verification test for Listeria that provides results in under one hour. We’ll dive into a plant environment and show testing and cleaning on actual equipment, and how the AOAC-approved Listeria Right Now allows for near-immediate response for checking that the sanitation program in place is effective against the pathogen.

Test in 1 Hour with Listeria Right Now

Our guides will be Jennifer Evans, Neogen’s link to the produce industry, and our Director of Technical Services, Tony Lupo. They’ll walk us through the test process, which is enrichment-free and doesn’t require microbiological expertise.

“Learning the how is as important as learning the what,” Lupo said. “A webinar that provides a first-hand experience like this — it’s the best way to get a complete understanding of how real-time results can be used to drive food safety decision-making.” [ More … ]
