Meat, Poultry Sanitation Workshop Nov. 29-30
Ironically, the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks forced the cancellation of a Sept. 13-14 workshop on a topic the attacks made even more important to shoppers: food safety. The workshop has been rescheduled.

The American Meat Science Association's "Improving Your Sanitation Program" for meat and poultry processors will now be Nov. 29-30. It's set for the Georgia Center for Continuing Education on the University of Georgia campus in Athens, Ga.

The two-day, comprehensive workshop will begin at 7:45 a.m. Nov. 29. It will fill two full days with timely classes, ending around 5 p.m. Nov. 30. The comprehensive course was developed in cooperation with Virginia Tech and UGA food scientists.

The course is designed for anyone responsible for meat or poultry processing plant sanitation, including quality control supervisors, HACCP coordinators, plant engineers and production managers.

A $395 fee covers the course materials, a reception Thursday evening, two luncheons and refreshment breaks. Preregistration is required before Nov. 16. Just 0016 get a form off the Web 26AF and fax it to (706) 542-9066.

For more information, call Estes Reynolds at (706) 542-2574. Or e-mail him.
