I am in Reno (no, I’m not gambling) attending a food safety conference sponsored by the Institute of Food Technologists and the Food Safety Research and Response Network. My talk in the morning is “Minimizing Your Liability Risk and Foodborne Illness Lawsuits.” The PowerPoint is below. Also, for some additional information about how we approach the investigation of an outbreak, please see an earlier paper I wrote “Separating the Chaff from the Wheat : How to determine the strength of a foodborne illness claim.”  You can find it at www.billmarler.com.
