United Fresh Recall ReadySM training workshop dates announced

Our motto is simple – Plan. Prepare. Be Recall Ready! The United Fresh Recall Ready SM Training Workshop is making its next stop in the Midwest! On December 8-9 at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL on the McDonald’s Headquarters campus just outside Chicago, the Recall Ready Team will conduct the final 2015 workshop for all produce industry members. 

“You don’t want an actual recall to be a training exercise and unfortunately, we know that recall events will continue to have an impact on the entire fresh produce supply chain. As an industry, we must all be committed to implementing effective strategies to protect public health, comply with government requirements and moreover, minimize the impacts on businesses,” said David Gombas, Senior Vice President of Food Safety and Technology for United Fresh. 

United’s Recall Ready Training Workshop is designed for companies throughout the produce supply chain including Growers/Shippers/Packers, Processors, Wholesalers & Distributors, Retailers, Restaurant Operators and Industry Organizations. This unique hands-on training workshop will help companies understand the fundamentals of a product recall, including their rights and responsibilities, the role of the FDA, and how to limit liability, manage customer expectations, and develop a recall plan.

Everyone within a produce company who may work on a potential recall can benefit from this training. The workshop combines recall protocols and communication management principles to ensure that your food safety, sales, marketing, and management teams work together effectively throughout a recall event.
