Food Recalls: Lucky’s Real Tomatoes v. “The Other Guys” – A Paradox in Ethics and Best Practices

1h 30m

Created on May 15, 2017



We are fortunate to live in the U.S. where we enjoy one of the world's safest food supplies. Despite our efforts, foodborne illnesses and food recalls are increasing at a rapid rate and over 40 million pounds of food products were recalled since 2014. As attorneys, we need to guide our clients appropriately when an issue arises; but what are food recall best practices and where do an attorney’s ethical obligations begin and end?

Join Rania V. Sedhom, Founding Member of Sedhom Law Group, PLLC, A Bespoke Law Firm, Lucky Lee, VP of Sales for Lucky’s Real Tomatoes, and Paula Fisher, owner of A&L Ag Solutions, LLC, as they discuss the Food Safety Modernization Act, how to handle a product recall, and an attorney’s ethical obligations and conundrums.

Rania V. Sedhom interviews Lucky Lee and Paula Fisher about food recalls and advises listeners about the ethical landmines that attorneys may face when assisting their clients with recalls.

  2. Identify the proper way to handle a food product recall
