Control of Listeria monocytogenes in RTE — FDA draft guidance released


Friday, 20 January, 2017


The FDA has released a draft guidance on the control of Listeria monocytogenes for companies manufacturing, processing, packing or holding ready-to-eat (RTE) foods.

The guidance is intended to help companies comply with the CGMP and PCHF requirements of 21 CFR part 117 with respect to measures that can significantly minimise or prevent the contamination of RTE food with L. monocytogenes whenever an RTE food is exposed to the environment prior to packaging and the packaged food does not receive a treatment or otherwise include a control measure (such as a formulation lethal to L. monocytogenes) that would significantly minimise L. monocytogenes.

The draft guidance can be downloaded here.
