The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Implications of the 2016 Product Recalls to the 2017 Product Liability Landscape

New York, NY, May 05, 2017 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Implications of the 2016 Product Recalls to the 2017 Product Liability Landscape This event is scheduled on June 1, 2017 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm (ET).

Event Synopsis:
In 2016, there were a number of high-profile products recalled from wide-range of consumer markets (from automobiles to mobile phones). For many companies, a simple safety recall can bring a regulatory nightmare, adverse publicity, and potentially class action lawsuits. To successfully navigate the risks of a product recall, it is important that companies understand their legal rights and obligations under federal and state regulations. It is also helpful for companies to work out a strategy to ensure that a product recall is both effective and efficient.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with a full overview of the anatomy of a product recall (starting with the decision itself and ending with lessons learned from litigation involving recalled products). The speakers will also offer guidance and crisis/risk management considerations in executing a product recall to avoid common pitfalls.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Overview of a Product Recall
- Reporting and Investigations – Regulatory noncompliance vs. safety defect
- Recall Planning and Best Practices
- Recall Trends
- Post-Recall Litigation Planning/Risk Mitigation
- Best Practices for Mitigating Litigation Risk During a Recall
- Joint Litigation/Recall Crisis Management Reflections
- Recent Recalls and Impact of Recalls on Litigation
- Recent recalls and related lawsuits
- Recall issues in product litigation
