I’m forwarding information about this upcoming webinar as it addresses an element that I haven’t seen yet in other webinars – recommendations for food regulators.  I encourage you to share this webinar and its information with your food service directors/anyone needing this information.

Dr. Williams will provide an overview and current status of the disease, what CDC is doing in response to the outbreak, and CDC’s current recommendations for food regulators and industry as a whole.
