Codex Alimentarius Commission 41st Session

CAC41 Side event: The International Food Safety Authorities Network - Codex and Recent Major Food Safety Events

Plenary Hall (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

This side event will provide participants with an overview of INFOSAN by discussing two recent and significant global food safety emergencies during which INFOSAN was instrumental in coordinating the rapid exchange of information between members around the world. Events to be discussed include the large and protracted outbreak of Listeriosis in South Africa linked to ready-to-eat meat, and the outbreak of Salmonella agona infections in France linked to globally distributed food products for infants. Both of these events highlight the application of several key codex standards and guidelines and illustrate the importance of their adoption and adaptation in order to prevent foodborne illness.
