Join Karolyn Helda, Managing Director at QIMA and Daniel Herling, Co-Chair of Product Liability Practice at law firm Mintz Levin, in this Q&A webinar as we discuss the legal risks that producers of consumer products face.

Dan has a deep understanding of California’s consumer protection regulations and laws and is an expert in product liability cases involving consumer products, serving as defense counsel in over 3,000 cases involving pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food, cosmetics, over-the-counter drugs and food and products marketed as containing natural ingredients.

Our discussion will cover:

  • Recent Prop65 trends and observations including an increase in violations reported, the restriction of short-form warnings and acrylamide-related issues
  • High-risk product categories and how to proactively prevent issues
  • Advice for businesses that have been asked to recall a product by the CPSC
