Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

non-stop-flights-from-the-usaI gave my keynote in Nelson, New Zealand (thanks again for the Seattle weather) – “How to avoid the lawyers coming calling on a food safety issue” – I am now in Auckland for a few days and next week I will be in Sydney, Australia giving a similar speech – “Foodborne illness litigation – What have we learned from recent food safety crises?”

In addition to trying to explain Trump (sorry, I can not), I have had to answer a number of questions about the following outbreaks hitting the US over the last week – many while I have been “down under.”
