The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) have announced a call for experts on the control of Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry meat. The opportunity is offered by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meeting on Microbiological Risk Assessment (JERMA). The purposes of the meetings are to collect, review, and discuss measures for controls of Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry meat, from production to consumption.
Selected candidates will collaborate with their peers to provide scientific advice to inform the update of the internationally recognized Codex Alimentarius Commission Guidelines for the Control of Campylobacter and Salmonella in Chicken Meat (CXG 78-2011). Additionally, FAO and WHO are requesting government bodies, industry officials, academia, consumer groups, and other applicable parties to submit any relevant data and information. Experts who are interested in participating are asked to submit their CVs by June 1, 2022.
