The Alliance for Listeriosis Prevention includes organizations with an interest in strategic approaches to preventing the contraction of listeriosis.
The purpose of the site is to establish a centralized location for information about new developments in listeriosis prevention.
While individual members provide valuable expertise in specific aspects of listeriosis, the Alliance hopes this site is helpful to consumers, the media and other opinion leaders, public officials, allied organizations and constituent groups.
Alliance for Listeriosis Prevention Submits Petition to USDA to Establish a Regulatory Limit for Listeria monocytogenes In Foods That Do Not Support Its Growth, May 31, 2005
"The food industry is committed to public health. To that end, members of the Alliance for Listeriosis Prevention believe firmly that unsafe food should not be sold - period. On May 31, 2005, the Alliance for Listeriosis Prevention submitted a petition to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to establish a regulatory limit of 100 colony forming units per gram (cfu/g) for Listeria monocytogenes in foods that do not support growth of the microorganism. “Growth” of the organism has been substantiated by FDA as a major factor that affects consumer exposure to L. monocytogenes."
