Dr. Todd Pritchard (UVM Nutrition and Food Sciences Department), Dr. Cathy Cutter (Pennsylvania State Food Safety Extension Specialist-Meats), and Dr. Londa Nwadike (UVM Extension Food Safety Specialist) will be the course instructors, with guest speakers Randy Queneville/ Dr. Kathy McNamara of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Meat Inspection Section.
