    NACCHO Webinar:

    Specialized Food Processes – Reduced Oxygen Packaging

    April 25 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

    NACCHO is pleased to host an online sharing session on Specialized Food Processes – Reduced Oxygen Packaging (ROP). Reduced Oxygen Packaging such as vacuum packaging, cook-chill and sous vide processes are considered specialized processes under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Model Food Code. The use of ROP has become increasingly popular in restaurants across the nation. Building a positive relationship between industry members and regulators is an important component in making sure ROP is implemented correctly for consumer food safety.

    During the first portion of the sharing session, food safety experts Chef Don Brizes and Chef Robert Brener will provide an industry perspective of implementing ROP in the restaurant.

    The second portion will feature a presentation from Vas Hofer on Maricopa County, AZ’s Variance and HACCP plan review processes for restaurants using ROP.

    Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and ask questions during the Questions and Answers period.

    May 1, 2018 in Helena, MT

    REGISTRATION CLOSES MARCH 23, 2018!!! 

    This training is provided by the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence. The applied outbreak investigation training is designed to be an intensive, interactive, full-day course to teach epidemiological skills that are needed during foodborne illness outbreak investigations. The course is for staff who could work on an investigation, including but not limited to public health nurses and sanitarians.

    This is your opportunity to expand or refresh your knowledge of foodborne outbreak investigations.  Food and Consumer Safety and Communicable Disease Epidemiology sections are sponsoring this one day, in-person workshop.  The instructors are from the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence.  This training is designed for staff who could potentially work on an outbreak investigation.   Sanitarians are invited to attend and to bring along their local public health nurse with whom they would partner during a foodborne outbreak investigation.  If you are working on the retail food standards program, this training can be applied to standard 5.

    The training is free, and Food and Consumer Safety will reimburse counties for mileage and hotels (at state rates).  The section will also reimburse counties for travel for one public health nurse who attends with their county sanitarian.
