Pedal to the metal, full throttle, balls to the wall. I prefer give’r. And according to Colombus Business First, the new food safety director at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is all about given’r when it comes to pathogens.
The Columbus-based ice cream company hired Cindy Decker, a veteran of more than 20 years in the food safety and quality monitoring fields, as its director of food safety.
Jeni’s said Decker is an expert in designing environmental programs to monitor microbes on surfaces.
“Our enhanced food safety program includes environmental, process and product testing to ensure the complete safety of our ice creams,” CEO John Lowe said in the release. “We worked with a team of outside experts last year to redesign the program but having Cindy’s level of expertise in-house is the next step in our efforts to be the industry leader in food safety.”
Jeni’s founder Jeni Britton Bauer profiled Decker in a blog post, calling her a “ balls to the wall, no nonsense listeria/microbe/pathogen hunter.”
