Navigating the new food safety environment demands dramatic changes in your culture, strategy and technology.

  • Impending ‘Swab-a-thons’ by regulatory agencies in your facility require heightened vigilance and environmental control
  • The government is using Whole Genome Sequencing on positive samples from those ‘Swab-a-thons’ to generate genetic fingerprints
  • The government is comparing the genetic fingerprints from your facility to the CDC’s GenomeTrakr database to solve unsolved illnesses.
  • Outbreaks, recalls and criminal investigations are on the rise

So what can you do?

Roka Bioscience is proud to present Food Safety Lawyer Shawn K. Stevens of Food Industry Counsel and Mary Duseau of Roka Bioscience in a webcast providing a roadmap to help food companies navigate the new regulatory, legal and technological environment and demonstrate how playing "FDA for a Day" with your own Self-Audit, under the protection of the attorney-client privilege and with Better Testing Technology, will not only prepare you for the impending governmental "swab-a-thons," but also prevent potential criminal action against your company.
