I've known Bill Marler for nearly 20 years. He and I rarely see eye to eye on things because his practice focuses on litigating foodborne illness cases against some of the companies that I have had the privilege of representing over the course of my career. But Bill's post, "Some thoughts on June 7 - World Food Safety Day," made me realize that he and I have more in common than I originally thought. Setting aside issues of fault, we all can agree that preventing the consumption of unsafe food and the human suffering it can cause, is a tragedy that often can be prevented. We also can all agree that we still have much to do. I hope everyone had a safe June 7, and I pray that the stories Bill describes in this post never have to be told again.
