Maple Leaf Foods 1

Lone Jespersen, former Director of Food Safety and Operations Learning at Maple Leaf Foods recently needed to address a critical situation. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) had asked the company to issue a voluntary product recall of chicken products in the retail stores that had been undercooked. After taking the products off the shelves, Jespersen needed to identify what could have been done to avoid this issue in the first place.
