Creating a Food Safety Culture

Due to the unpredictable and changing developments concerning COVID-19, Michigan State University has halted all in person courses on campus this summer. So, it is with deep sadness that we announce Creating a Food Safety Culture 2020 will be postponed until Summer 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety and well-being of our attendees is our first priority.
