The United Fresh Produce Association has food safety web seminars scheduled on a variety of topics, starting with a look at the Food and Drug Administration’s recent unveiling of its blueprint for the New Era of Smarter Food Safety.

The free “New Era” seminar is from 2-3 p.m. Eastern Aug. 5. Registration is online.

“This webinar will go beyond the numerous bulleted framework points, to share the insights, implications, anticipated impacts, and opportunities for engagement in the journey with FDA,” according to the seminar notice from United Fresh.

Speakers for the event are:

United Fresh also has a web seminar on Aug. 18, “Listeria — How to tell if it’s transient.”

“Resident and transient strains of Listeria monocytogenes can be difficult to identify,” according to the United Fresh notice. “Learn how to differentiate between the two, what to do once that determination is made, and why this distinction matters.”

The web seminar is sponsored by Ecolab.

A virtual recall ready workshop will be Sept. 10-11 as part of United Fresh’s Recall Ready Program. Through a partnership with OFW Law and Watson Green LLC, United Fresh leverages the expertise of food safety, legal and crisis communications experts, according to the notice. Registration and information on fees is online.
