David Graham to Speak at the America Conference Institute’s Summit on Food Safety Regulatory Compliance

August 27, 2015

David P. Graham, Minneapolis-based senior counsel and leader of Dykema’s Food & Beverage Practice Group, will serve as a featured speaker at the America Conference Institute’s 4th Summit on Food Safety and Regulatory Compliance. The summit will take place September 29-30, 2015, in Chicago.

Graham will moderate a presentation titled, “Policy Debate – What a Single Food Safety Regulatory Agency Would Mean to Your Company and Is The President’s Proposal a Good or a Bad Idea?”. The presentation will cover the President’s 2016 budget—which proposes a consolidation of FSIS and FDA food-safety components into a new agency within the Department of Health and Human Services, as well as the implications for the FDA, USDA, and CDC. The pros and cons of one Federal Food Safety Regulatory Agency will also be debated.
