Importers have unique regulatory, technical and crisis communication considerations during a recall. The United Fresh Recall Ready Program is now offering a one-day, recall ready seminar designed specifically for U.S. importers of fresh fruits and vegetables. With increasing produce imports, greater FDA scrutiny at the borders and ports of entry, and upcoming changes under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), it is more important than ever that importers be prepared to handle the unexpected.
Attendees will learn the unique role importers play during a recall and what importers can do to be prepared to handle a food safety event. Speakers will address FDA’s expectations during a recall, regulatory laws and importer liability, food safety considerations and crisis communication needs. The seminar also includes a table-top recall exercise in which groups will go through the recall decision-making process.
