Food Safety Business Risks are Growing  


We have been warning our readers for some time that companies involved in food production, distribution and packaging now face considerable business risk under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).


Consider what is going on with Blue Bell after their ice cream was found to be contaminated with Listeria. A costly recall followed and financial losses are mounting. Before all is said and done, Blue Bell is likely to endure several lawsuits, FDA fines and possibly even criminal charges.


Now there is even talk of implementing a "Sarbanes-Oxley Act" for the food industry, requiring management to personally sign off on food safety audits.


Quoting Bill Marler, an attorney who specializes in food safety, "Does it not seem at least equally important that the food manufacturers or retailers ask our children to put in their bodies have some of the safeguards that investors have in the same corporation?

I would place a large bet that if Blue Bell corporate officials and auditors had had been under this scrutiny, you would not now be missing your favorite ice cream this summer, thousands would not have lost their jobs and families would not be mourning the loss of a loved one, and lawyers would not be circling."

And regardless of which food safety standard is utilized, our nationwide alliance of food safety consultants provides a local answer for your needs.
