2007 was the year of the recall, with e-coli contamination increasing sharply in 2007 over the previous two years. And it’s not just beef recalls and e-coli contamination that are making the news… Peanut butter, spinach, pot pies and pizza; salmonella, listeria and other toxins… All kinds of food-borne illnesses and the ensuing litigation are on the rise, as experts point fingers at increased use of offshore food sources, a largely self-regulated industry, and other factors in an attempt to explain the sudden surge. It’s clearly a critical time for food companies, and the lawyers who advise them, to get valuable, practical information to enable you to minimize the likelihood of these situations and the ensuing litigation from occurring – and to manage the litigation appropriately when it arises.

To address these growing concerns, American Conference Institute has developed this critical conference on Preventing and Managing Food-Borne Illness Litigation. For this unique event, we’ve assembled a multi disciplinary faculty of epidemiologists, microbiologists, key regulators and top litigators in the area, and an agenda that covers all the issues that arise in litigating and settling these complex cases. Get strategic and practical insights into:

Understanding the science behind tracing and identifying a pathogen – so you can make or refute the causal link in your case
Getting back on track with consumers after a crisis:getting out the right message
Using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests:why they are such an effective discovery tool in food borne illness cases
Deposing food-borne illness experts: tips and techniques

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear what others are doing in response to this growing, highly-specialized litigation. Get your questions answered and get valuable tips and practice points you can use in your own cases. Spaces will go quickly, so register now for this important event. We look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale in February.
