Western Regional Center to Enhance Food Safety (WRCEFS) hosted its 4th Annual Meeting online on May 12, 2020. During the one day virtual meeting, 92 attendees had the opportunity to hear updates from WRCEFS members and FSOP grant awardees in the Western Region, USDA, FDA, PSA, FSPCA, LFSC, IFAI, sister Regional Centers and Lead Regional Coordination Center. The group discussed regional updates for 2019-2020, walked through a demonstration of the peer-review process for add-on materials, and listened to a panel discussion on food industry challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Highlights from the 2020 Annual Meeting can be found here.
