An EAS and Food Safety News Complimentary Webinar.
Listeria monocytogenes in Ice Cream and Frozen Novelties
Presented by Kathy Knutson, Ph.D., EAS Independent Consultant.
Ice cream is often associated with childhood, special occasions, and moments of pleasure with family and friends. Everyone has special ice cream memories! However, memories of eating ice cream should not be associated with illness, hospitalization, or death.

In this webinar, Dr Knutson will discuss:
- Current information and data on the outbreak
- FDA guidance for Ready-to-Eat foods
- Listeria mitigation and control
- Environmental monitoring best practices
