Articulo señala como manejar el escaldado para minimizar la Listeria en los alimentos congelados
The tool consists of a step-by-step guide on how to improve the blanching process. It can be incorporated into any facility’s food safety plan to evaluate the application of its processing equipment for pathogen control and apply appropriate monitoring technologies, ultimately achieving higher Listeria monocytogenes control and prevention.
The document is the result of input from over 70 talented food safety professionals from 42 AFFI member companies and aims to combat the risk of Listeria by developing best food safety practices. “A key component of AFFI’s goal to advance food safety includes providing AFFI members and the entire frozen food industry with educational resources that represent the industry’s best thinking,” said AFFI president and chief executive Alison Bodor in announcing AFFI’s newest food safety resource.
“Especially in the area of developing and implementing most effective food safety practices, the entire industry must work together.” At the same time, AFFI’s board of directors passed a resolution on food safety committing their organisations and calling on others in the industry to collaborate and develop common best food safety practices for the frozen food and beverage industry. Additional best food safety practices for sanitation, sanitary design of equipment and facilities, process validation and environmental monitoring will be released throughout this year.
