“You can get as prepared as you can get, but you still need a team to get you through a specific circumstance,” he said.

Durkin said that people who don’t have a recall plan don’t understand the legal significance of the fact they just committed a crime. “They need to take that seriously,” he said. Durkin said that the notice of a recall typically starts the beginning of an investigation, and he said a company needs to understand its rights and obligations are.

Gombas said being prepared can make all the difference, and even more so with food safety regulations now being written. With the FDA’s preventive control rule, Gombas said every facility will have to have a recall plan.

“We don’t see that disappearing from the final rule and those companies that prepare will be that much more ahead of the gain.”

I am somewhat confused by this. Initially United offered recall training programs for a fee. These were well attended and very informative. We were told that United was there for members to offer support if a need arose. I do understand that legal advice is not given freely. What concerns me is this comes across as a conflict of interest.
