Food Safety Law Treatise Updated – Release Number 11 Now Available

Posted in Beverages, Foods

ljp-Food-Safety-Law-coverMcGuireWoods’ Food and Beverage Industry Team is proud to have written the nation’s leading treatise on Food Safety Law.  Jim Neale and Angela Spivey co-authored the authoritative work, which should be on the bookshelf of anyone practicing in the regulatory compliance or litigation of food safety arenas.  The treatise enjoys a foreword by Bill Marler, one of the nation’s leading plaintiff’s side food safety attorneys and is updated twice a year to ensure that it contains the most timely and relevant information.  Release Number 11 is now available.  It features a detailed discussion of the long-awaited final rules implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act, such as the Sanitary Transport Rule, the Food Defense Rule, and the Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Control Rule. It also addresses the FDA’s new Generally Accepted as Safe (“GRAS”) and Nutritional Labeling Rules.  In addition, this Release analyzes the latest case law on consumer class action lawsuits challenging food labeling; insurance and indemnity caselaw relating to food production and food contamination; and causation in foodborne illness cases. Release 11 also discusses the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, which will create, for the first time, a uniform federal law on GMO and bioengineering disclosure, displacing state laws such as Vermont Act 120.  The treatise is available in print and electronic form and should be part of the library of any reader of FDA Life.  You can order your copy at this LINK
