We are doing a series of inservice trainings for the younger lawyers and staff so they have a better understanding of how various parts of Government work on Food Safety.  We have already finished a former CDC/PulseNet person (Dr. Bala Swaminathan) and we still have more to do.  Today we had the honor to have Dr. Richard Raymond, former head of FSIS.  Here is his PowerPoint.

    Very interesting presentation. Thanks for providing.

    Thanks for the presentation. As a USDA inspector, I’ve had to take oodles of salmonella samples from broiler carcasses but have never really seen the nationwide results accumulated and in analyzed form. My locavore buddy would be shocked at how high the salmonella positives are in the very small plants she gets her chicken from.

    Locavorism is great for local economies but should not be treated as a panacea for the food safety problem. As Dr. Raymond shows, knowing your farmer and your food, doesn’t always mean it won’t make you sick like “factory farmed” food.

    Great information, I will use some of it during our next GMP training session.
