Food processing expert witnesses may have varying backgrounds, as the field entails any process by which separate ingredients are changed into edible food products. Food processing expert consulting may be sought out for litigation involving such areas as food science, refrigeration, food technology, biomechanical engineering, chemical engineering, the food and beverage industry, the hospitality industry, or food processing plants, each of which may become the center of a food processing-related court case.
Food processing expert witnesses may be called upon for cases to provide an expert opinion on whether the food processing procedure in question properly adhered to the required rules and regulations as set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as failing to do so puts consumers at risk for being exposed to bacteria food borne illnesses, as well as other problems resulting from food safety violations and poor sanitation. Food manufacturing workplaces are therefore subjected to building inspections as a means of monitoring the food processing stages for the purpose of protecting both employees and consumers.
As with any discipline involving the food and beverage industries, food processing expert witnesses may also be knowledgeable with food microbiology, restaurants, snacks, supermarkets, and other areas of the field. In the event of a food processing error, product recalls may be implemented in response to poor quality assurance.
