The Rising Threat of Criminal Prosecution in the Food and Beverage Industry

February 18, 2014

Complimentary Webinar

When food safety violations occur, not only are companies at risk for civil liability and criminal prosecution, but corporate executives at such companies can face criminal prosecution as well. Federal prosecutors have recently demonstrated an increased emphasis on criminal prosecution of corporate executives, as exemplified by charges brought by the federal government against food company executives.

Members of McGuireWoods’ Food and Beverage and Government, Regulatory and Criminal Investigations groups provide an informative discussion on such threats, as well as guidance on navigating the legal risks.

Topics

  • The Park Doctrine
  • Recent Prosecutions in the Food and Beverage Industry
  • Practical Tips for Responding to Investigations and Criminal Prosecution
