WCMA Webinar Looks At COVID Inspection Protocols and Flexibilities for Wisconsin Pants

Register now to join a free COVID-19 webinar available exclusively to members of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) on Thursday, December 10 from 1:00-1:45 p.m. (CST). A key food safety leader at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) will provide updates to the agency’s inspection protocols and regulatory flexibilities, amid the ongoing pandemic.

“Open communication with industry regulators has been essential to uninterrupted dairy production in Wisconsin, throughout this challenging period,” said John Umhoefer, WCMA Executive Director.  “As policies continue to shift, WCMA is pleased to connect members with our food safety partners at DATCP.”

Tim Anderson, Manager of DATCP’s Division of Food and Recreational Safety, will present on December 10, alongside WCMA staff.  Anderson will detail the agency’s new pandemic inspection protocols, plans to continue timing and sealing services, and inspection debit flexibility secured from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration.

WCMA will reserve time at the end of the webinar for DATCP staff to respond to member questions.  WCMA will present pre-submitted questions from members anonymously. Send questions by Tuesday, December 8 to WCMA Communications, Education, and Policy Director Rebekah Sweeney at [email protected].
