FMI Webinar: Working with FDA during a Recall

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 (1pm - 2pm US/Eastern)


Food safety is the number one priority of the retail industry and maintaining food safety for customers requires diligence by the entire supply chain. Product recalls are the last step in the supply chain to remove potentially harmful products from commerce. There are endless reasons for product recalls and they are always highly stressful situations. The best way to handle recalls is to be prepared. It is essential that during a recall companies are prepared to communicate and work with the local FDA District Recall Coordinator.

Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. EDT to learn about FDAs recall program. Tom Kuntz, Acting Team Lead for FDA's Recall and Product Reconditioning Team, will discuss FDAs process for handling recalls and classifying recalls. Tom will touch on the timing and inconsistency of recall classification and how to overcome challenges with your regional recall coordinators. He will also provide an overview of FDAs current initiatives related to recalls such as FDAs new Strategic Coordinated Oversight of Recall Execution (SCORE) program.
