Americans experience as many as 76 million foodborne illnesses each year — a problem that has led to an unprecedented level of litigation. Food Safety Law is the definitive guide to this rapidly growing practice area. Whether you represent food producers concerned about liability or plaintiffs harmed by a foodborne illness, this unique book will help you handle any issue.
Food Safety Law examines the entire administrative maze, with particular emphasis on the USDA and FDA. The authors analyze the legal and practical issues food safety attorneys face, from prevention and compliance to recalls and litigation after an outbreak. Topics covered include: inspections; detection of outbreaks; food safety threats; injurious objects in food; current good manufacturing practices; recall strategies; causes of action and defenses; proving causation; complex litigation; insurance coverage; labeling requirements; and the newest legal frontiers.
Even a mid-sized recall involves issues of regulatory compliance, product liability litigation, insurance coverage, and more. Whether you represent food producers or plaintiffs, whether you are advising a company on how to steer clear of problems or doing damage control after the fact, Food Safety Law is an essential touchstone for legal counsel.
