Dr. Melinda Hayman of Food Safety Net Services aims to help processors understand the science behind salmonella and how to best manage this food-borne pathogen during her presentation, "Detection and control of salmonella," at Petfood Forum 2011, April 11 through 13, in Schaumburg, Ill.

Hayman will review sampling plan design and implementation, discuss testing technologies and explain the role of process validation studies to ensure the effectiveness of processing steps in the reduction and control of salmonella.


Members of the poultry and feed industries involved in pet food manufacturing are invited to attend this annual event. Details of additional scheduled sessions on pet food processing and safety for this year’s event can be viewed here.
