Publication of Listeria fact sheets for producers of ready-to-eat animal products

MPI has developed a series of fact sheets that provide information on Listeria monocytogenes for producers and manufacturers of ready-to-eat animal products. These fact sheets help to support the implementation of Part 15: Requirements for Listeria of the Animal Products Notice: Specifications for Products Intended for Human Consumption that come into force on 1st October 2016.

These fact sheets provide information about the foodborne bacteria Listeria and key good operating practices and control measures that can help to minimise contamination in the processing area.

These factsheets are available on the Listeria – resources and documents webpage at:

Further information about the Animal Products Notice: Specifications for Products Intended for Human Consumption is available from:
