Tajkarimi and Sayler Discuss RTEs in Natural Products Insider

Independent Consultant Mehrdad Tajkarimi and Senior Director Allen Sayler co-wrote an article for Natural Products Insider discussing Cause, Effect and Impact of RTE Operations on complying with FDA’s draft Listeria guidance. Food manufacturers are expected to operate within an entirely new scheme of “design out” of potential entry and harborage of Listeria, develop “hygienic zoning”, enhance monitoring and record keeping for cleaning and sanitizing a food processing facility and more. As FDA inspectors use draft FDA guidance for Control of Listeria Monocytogenes in Ready to Eat Foods during routine and targeted investigations, these new criteria, as well as others found in the guidance, will become the new benchmark of safety against Listeria in RTE operations.
