United Launches New Monthly Webinar Series
United Fresh Produce Association members are invited to log-in for a new, complimentary webinar series hosted by the trade association’s market segment boards and expert councils.
Each month, United’s volunteer leader groups will tackle a new topic on key issues impacting the industry.
The first in the webinar series, hosted by the United Fresh Grower-Shipper Board, will address “Strategies for Limiting Your Legal Exposure in Recalls.” Set to take place on Jan. 16 at 11:00 a.m. PST/2:00 p.m. EST, the one-hour webinar, as part of United’s group of Recall Ready programs and services, will help produce companies understand the legal consequences from foodborne illness outbreaks and recall events, and identify strategies that companies can use to avoid staggering financial losses and criminal charges in the future.
Attorneys David Durkin, Olsson, Frank & Weeda, and Danny Gurwitz, Atlas, Hall & Rodriguez, will examine the scope of America’s food safety laws, review real-world case studies showing successful legal strategies, and address the most critical civil and criminal liability issues facing fresh produce companies today.
Registration for this webinar is free to United Fresh members and $50 for non-members. Pre-registration is required and registration is limited.
The next webinar in the series, hosted by the Food Safety & Technology Council, is scheduled for Feb. 21, and will address how to use FDA’s Quantitative Risk Assessment to validate alternative food safety limits to those published in the proposed Produce Safety Rule.
