Three Decades Of Crisis Management Experience

Eric F. Greenberg, P.C. provides legal representation to clients whose food products are, or are suspected of being in violation of FDA provisions and state laws. He has represented numerous parties experiencing hardships and helped them comply with FDA regulations. Any food crisis affects many suppliers, even suppliers whose food is not contaminated.

For example, when the spinach outbreak hit the United States, a number of companies responsible for producing and transporting spinach were affected when it was temporarily removed from the market. It was a preventative measure to reassure consumers that quality assurance guidelines would be assessed and new practices would be put into place.

Representing Companies before the FDA & State Agencies

For 30 years, Mr. Greenberg has handled crisis management for companies throughout Illinois and the United States. Large corporations and production plants count on legal representation when a food poisoning outbreak or contamination, production, packaging, or shipping issue emerges. When such crises arise, we can help clients in the following ways:

  • Assist with determining recall of the product.
  • Handling communications with the Food and Drug Administration and state agencies.
  • Coordinating statements for presentation to consumers and the media.
  • Establishing new practices and procedures for protection of consumers.
  • Investigation of the scope and cause of the crisis/outbreak/contamination.
  • Limiting damage caused by food crisis.
  • Reassuring and preserving customer relations.

When a company responds proactively and effectively, reassuring clients, and putting into practice new safety procedures, the company can often come out of the crisis in a better position and stronger than when it started. Responding successfully to a crisis in the food industry is the most important step in resolving it. In turn, effective preparation is a key to a successful response.

PANDEMIC’S EFFECTS ON FOOD MANUFACTURING, FOR BETTER OR WORSE, COULD LINGER

Pandemic’s Effects on Food Manufacturing, for Better or Worse, Could Linger

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

It’s the A, B, Cs of food manufacturing and packaging. Building-in controls that assure food safety and quality are the very essence of any good food operation. The law requires it, the regulations require it, private standards certifications require it, and just good common sense requires it. That’s why food making and packaging operations incorporate preventive controls, Good Manufacturing Practices, and QA and QC steps, and regularly reevaluate what they’re doing and make adjustments. And it’s all a lot of work.
