Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

It has been a very busy week

Recently at the 93rd annual meeting for the International Association for Food Protection in Calgary, Alberta, Canada I spoke on: “Making Foods Safer: How Outbreaks Can Influence Change,” on the topic of whether litigation helps food safety in the United States. I also spoke on the topic of raw milk consumption and sale, addressing legal issues regarding the sale of raw milk. Finally, I spoke on: “International Food Law – A Global Overview,” on the topic of key food safety legislation and enforcement practices in the United States.
Founded in 1911, IAFP is a non-profit association of food safety professionals. IAFP strives to keep members informed of the latest scientific, technical, and practical developments in food safety and sanitation, and publishes two scientific journals: Food Protection Trends and Journal of Food Protection.
All in all it was a great conference.
