“The Shift from Reaction to Prevention for Animal Feedstuffs” is the topic for part two of the symposium, presented by Dan McChesney, Office of Surveillance and Compliance, FDA/CVM.

The final session is titled, “Retailer Perspective of Food Safety in International Markets.” This features Natalie Dyenson, Senior Director of Supplier Food Safety at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

“Food Safety: Global Challenges to a Safe Food Supply” will be held in Kansas City Convention Center in Room 2102A from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.
