BROOKINGS, S.D. – If you’re in the business of direct meat sales to consumers, an event that will cover meat regulation and food safety issues is being offered in August.

The Food Safety Summit is an opportunity to learn about federal meat regulations and current food safety issues. Presentations will cover the scientific gaps in Appendix A and B, navigating critical control points in non-meat ingredients, minimizing STEC in raw beef, and industry perspectives on sanitation.

Held jointly by South Dakota State University Extension and USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, anyone involved in the meat and poultry industry is invited to attend.

Set for August 3, 2023 at the SDSSU Animal Science Complex, registration begins at 8:30a.m. and the program will run from 9:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.

There will be both an in-person and virtual option to attend the summit that includes a fee.  Registration covers program information and lunch and parking for in-person attendees.

Registration is preferred by July 26, 2023. Registrations after the deadline will not be guaranteed lunch if attending in person or access to the provided presentation files.

For more information and to register, contact Christina Bakker, Assistant Professor and SDSU Extension Meat Science Specialist, 1-605-688-5436 or [email protected]
