Emerging Issues in Food Products Litigation

TASA ID: 1926

On September 14, 2011, at 2 p.m. ET, The TASA Group, Inc., in conjunction with food and beverage expert Dr. Darrel Suderman, presented a free, interactive, one-hour webinar, Emerging Issues in Food Products Litigation, for all legal professionals.

Even though U.S. safety standards are equivalent to the best in the world, most food contamination and product failures are the result of manufacturing operations and food safety negligence and compliance errors. In addition, as the U.S. continues to source more and more food from other countries, the liability of food companies to guarantee safe food to the American public is growing exponentially.

During this one-hour event, the following issues were discussed:
  • Broken Cold Chain Failures
  • Reduced Oxygen Packaging Failure
  • Poor HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) Plans Developed for New Products
  • Poor Sanitation Practices
  • Incomplete Tracking and Tracing Systems
  • Mock Recalls Poorly Executed
  • Absence of Food Safety Culture
  • Corporate Food Safety Advisory Councils Poorly Assembled
  • Organic and Natural Foods Tracking and Tracing Systems Poorly Developed
  • Nasty Industry Secrets
