Recalls & Industry Learnings
Dr. Scott Hood, General Mills
Over the last few years, wheat flour has been implicated in E. coli outbreaks and Salmonella recalls. General Mills will share information on one of the outbreaks and discuss some of the challenges facing the milling industry. In addition, the presentation will share insights from some of the recalls initiated by product sampling. The information and insights will focus on epidemiological data, microbiological testing data and interactions with the regulatory agencies.

Join us for an interactive discussion on the who, what, when and why of conducting a Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) as well as related NFPA topics. There has been a fair amount of confusion regarding NFPA standards, especially as they relate to DHA compliance. Industry experts will answer such questions as the qualifications needed to conduct a DHA, when it is required, what it should contain, and how to resolve conflicts between NFPA 652 and 61. Methods of compliance for equipment found to not meet the standards will also be part of this discussion.
