Food companies face greater obligations than ever in the supply chain with significant new regulations under FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act), increased FDA scrutiny, and private litigation. The new regulations and other liability and insurance issues your company should know were discussed during a complimentary webinar on Tuesday, March 29.
During the webinar Keller and Heckman LLP attorneys discussed the new FSMA requirements pertaining to preventative controls, foreign supplier verifications, and recordkeeping provisions that are happening at a time when food-borne illness traceback/recalls, FDA inspections, consumer class actions, and criminal investigations and sanctions are on the rise. While insurance can provide some security, it may be insufficient, lack basic coverages, or contain exclusions that leave food companies with excessively high levels of liability exposure. We discussed the comprehensive steps your company can take now to mitigate strict liability exposure in complex food supply chains.
