Join us as Deb Radman, APR, PRSA Fellow, speaks with Marie Fenn, president and managing director, National Peanut Board, and Mark Dvorak, APR, vice president, GolinHarris International, about how the National Peanut Board responded to a recall of more than 3,000 of its products.
In 2009, the National Peanut Board faced a growing crisis as the recall of 3,000 of its peanut products comprised the largest food recall in U.S. history. On behalf of America’s 10,000 peanut farmers, the organization handled the crisis by responding quickly and efficiently, educating consumers and the media to ultimately restore trust in U.S.A.-grown peanuts and peanut products. The campaign not only reversed a downward trend in sales, but resulted in a volume increase over the previous year.
