Judith McGeary, Esq: Food Safety Laws
Judith McGeary will address the major developments in food safety regulation in the last year, including HR 2749, S 510 and FDA's produce standards. The presentation will cover what would actually be required under these laws and regulations and what are the remaining open issues. Judith will also cover the realities of the politics behind these laws, the issues facing farmers and consumers in lobbying Congress and the agencies, and how individuals and organizations can maximize their impact.
