FSIS (Food Safety
and Inspection Service)
Guidance for Controlling Listeria in Retail Delis
In June 2015, USDA’s
Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) released "FSIS Best
Practices Guidance for Controlling Listeria monocytogenes (Lm)
in Retail Delicatessens,"
which provides specific actions retailers can take to decrease the
potential for Listeria growth or cross-contamination. FSIS
recently released a tri-fold
that is a condensed version of the “FSIS Best Practices Guidance”
and provides retailers with practical suggestions for reducing the
likelihood of Listeria contamination in their
establishments. The trifold brochure is also available in Spanish.
