Partner Ron Leibman Tapped to Provide Comment Re New Food Transportation Rule
Partner Ron Leibman, Co-Chair of Riker Danzig's Transportation and Logistics Group, was quoted extensively in Law360’s article “FDA Food Safety Rule Presents New Challenges For Shippers” on April 6, 2016. The article discusses the new rule that requires companies transporting food in the U.S. to ensure that the food is not contaminated during shipping.
Ron notes that the rule affects everyone in the transportation chain: “If you’re a shipper or a carrier or receiver involved in that process, you’re involved in the law,” he says in the article. Ron goes on to explain that “[the rule] didn’t so much change things as codify what the industry [already] did in terms of best practices.”
