Webinar: A Seat at the Table – What's new in food law

Please join us on Monday, November 16 for the next complimentary webinar in our A Seat at the Table series, covering what's new in food law.

Our speakers provide insightful analysis of the latest news and trends in the food and beverage industry. This session will focus on updates to California's Proposition 65, key issues with the Food and Drug Administration's proposed traceability rule, and the latest Congressional efforts to combat the use of forced labor in China. Please see below for the program agenda:

Proposition 65

Xin Tao will address recently proposed updates to California's Proposition 65, which could significantly change the warning requirements for listed chemicals (e.g., acrylamide) formed by the cooking or heat processing of foods.

Proposed traceability rule

Elizabeth Fawell and Leigh Barcham will provide a brief overview of the FDA's Proposed Rule for food traceability and tentative Food Traceability List, including key takeaways and the types of foods covered.

Combatting forced labor

Chandri Navarro will cover the U.S. government's recent actions to curb the distribution of goods manufactured with the use of forced labor, including those from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. These actions could effectively ban the import of items produced in the region and would impose sanctions on companies importing products from China that are suspected of having forced labor anywhere in the supply chain or involve certain Chinese business entities listed as being involved with forced labor (such as XPCC).

CLE credit is pending state bar approval in New York, California, and Texas.
