McGuire Woods LLPMcGuireWoods’ food and beverage industry team is proud to have written the nation’s leading treatise on “Food Safety Law.” Jim Neale and Angela Spivey co-authored the authoritative work, which should be on the bookshelf of anyone practicing in the areas of regulatory compliance or food safety litigation.

The treatise includes a foreword by Bill Marler, one of the nation’s leading plaintiff food safety attorneys and is updated twice a year to ensure that it contains the most timely and relevant information.

Release No. 11 of this publication is now available. It features a detailed discussion of the long-awaited final rules implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act, such as the Sanitary Transport Rule, the Food Defense Rule, and the Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Control Rule. It also addresses the Food and Drug Administration’s new “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) and nutrition labeling rules.

In addition, this release analyzes the latest case law on consumer class action lawsuits on topics such as challenging food labeling; insurance and indemnity case law relating to food production and food contamination; and causation in foodborne illness cases.

Release 11 also discusses the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, which will create, for the first time, a uniform federal law on genetically modified organism and bioengineering disclosure, displacing state laws such as Vermont Act 120.
