Virtual Product Responsibility Summit 2020: Recall Preparedness—What Do You Need To Know About FDA Recalls?

Recorded On: 09/18/2020

Recall preparedness is a must, but with the recent pivot to PPE, it is essential that member companies are up to speed on not only CPSC recalls, but also FDA recalls. The session with Neal Cohen, Kathleen Sanzo, and Lieutenant Commander Pamela Ogonowski will identify best practices and tactics to ensure you are prepared in the case you are required to execute a recall. This session will qualify as an elective for the Product Safety Awareness initiative.
