Developed by food processors for food processors, the checklist was designed to help assess gaps in Listeria control programs in frozen vegetable operations.

While it was developed specifically for frozen vegetable operations, food processors in all sectors with concerns about Listeria contamination of their product may find this checklist helpful in assessing program gaps.

A team of frozen vegetable food safety experts from Food Northwest member companies developed this audit format checklist so that processors everywhere could prioritize their continuous improvement food safety projects in these areas:

  • Sanitary design of facilities and amenities, equipment and utensils
  • Cleaning and sanitation practices
  • Environmental monitoring considerations in the control of Listeria
  • Water control in the production area
  • Good manufacturing practices and personal hygiene
