Food Recalls

When a food company experiences a crisis― a foodborne disease outbreak, possible bioterrorism threat, product recall, food product tampering, government enforcement activity, or even a natural disaster―it needs a multidisciplinary approach to crisis management. Along with the disaster comes allegations and blame, and you can often be faced with calls for government action or congressional or agency scrutiny. You need quick assessments and careful responses, and you need damage control.
