                                December 07, Tuesday 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Why Should You Attend:

Reacting is the norm but anticipating and preparing are what's needed. Creating a robust process that will protect both
the consumer and the company's reputation requires careful planning and the active involvement of each department.
Another crucial element is communication, with the public as well as customers and shareholders. The risk posed by
the product is one important element but anticipating the consumer's reaction is key. Whether they respond with
disinterest to a serious hazard versus outrage requires a different communication strategy. As well, the messages sent
at the outset of the recall will be different than when the regulator gets involved and different again as the recall
reaches a conclusion.

The course will describe how to create the most comprehensive Recall Plan (or Crisis Response Plan).Once the
process has been documented we will review the Data Gathering / Investigation phase specifically and give examples
of microbiological studies (e.g. Listeria monocytogenes) important issues to be remembered. We will discuss what
are the best practices of an effective crisis communication. We will discuss the roles and approaches under different
crisis scenarios.
