Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When a food company faces recalls, their crisis communicators need to direct their message to those most likely to be affected- consumers-and provide them with information on how to deal with the recall. The study here by Monique Farmer and Ming Wang demonstrates that a focus on “instructional messaging” correlates with a positive tone in newspaper coverage.
