    Dr. Brian Nummer is giving a talk on November 30th and Dec 1-2nd in Las Vegas.

    Here are more details of the first Las Vegas FSMA (Human Foods Preventative Controls) workshop.

    I am providing a FSMA HARPC workshop in Las Vegas – Nov 30, Dec 1-2.  I’ve attached three docs (attached) photo, one pager and six pager on the event and FSMA.  The six-pager has details on what food manufacturing businesses must do to comply including receive training in HARPC to become a “qualified individual”. Retail-foodservice folks are not mandated, but should have this information in order to audit their suppliers.  Food safety professionals (consultants, etc) should have this training to be up to date.  The last document has a six-page review of HARPC and would be beneficial to distribute to staff who would like a synopsis for their own education.

    I appreciate if you could forward this to anyone in your group or extended network!!

    Registration is found here: http://food-safety-guru.eventbrite.com
