Your Food Safety Recall Plan Will Not Save You

(Webinar length:  1hr 25min)


With a vastly improved national network of food safety surveillance capabilities, an increasing number of problems associated with food products (from pathogens to allergens) are being identified, and more products are being recalled. For this reason, if you process or sell food products, the question is not whether your company will someday be forced to issue an expansive recall, the real question is when. And, when that happens, simply having a recall plan is not enough.

The only way to ensure the survival of your company when a true crisis occurs is to have a world-class crisis management plan in place. The plan should be designed to outline the specific steps you will take in conjunction with any recall to effectively limit and contain your regulatory and litigation exposure.
