Partner Nathan Beaver was quoted in an Inside Health Policy
article, "Food Industry Hopes FDA Is Judicious In Disclosing Retail Info In Recalls
," about the FDA's recent guidance on disclosing food retailer information during certain recalls.
Beaver said the restaurants and manufacturers he works with welcome the guidance, as long as the agency is judicious in its disclosures and makes an effort to ensure the information is accurate before releasing it to the public.
"I think if FDA sees this as an area where this is used within limits, there won't be objections because everyone's first concern is public safety," he said. "My sense is from what I am hearing is we want to work with FDA, we want to use this in areas where this is appropriate and judicious."
