WSCI to Hold Seminar on How to Prepare for a Product Recall
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/24/2013
The Wisconsin Specialty Cheese Institute kicks off 2013 with a focus on surviving the first 24 hours of a product recall by offering a dynamic educational session on crisis management, level 1,2,3 product recalls and recall insurance at its February 15 meeting. The program will be held at the Chula Vista Resort in
the Wisconsin Dells.
Organizers say companies will take part in a fictional recall exercise scenario designed to encourage cheesemakers to consider steps they would take in the event of an incident. Attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of their own recall policy to the session, and consider sending a member of their Quality
Assurance staff. Lunch is included and the session will adjourn at 2 p.m.
"This session will be a unique opportunity to hear different perspectives from a wide range of experts on the issue of crisis management," said Jim Natzke, President of the Wisconsin Specialty Cheese Institute. "Many cheese companies may not be aware of the full scope that a product recall may entail. The
Wisconsin dairy industry’s livelihood depends on being ready for a recall, and this session will benefit everyone who attends."
The meeting and session is free to paid members of the Wisconsin Specialty Cheese Institute and the Wisconsin Artisan Cheesemaker Guild. Non-members may attend for a $25 per person fee.
