SG Systems feature article “The Do’s and Don’ts of a Food Recall”

by Angela Fernandez

Anyone in the food industry knows recalls or withdrawals are an inevitable food safety measure to keep the public safe. Being able to locate a food product anywhere in the supply chain should be considered a best practice for everyday business, not just something to think about in an emergency event. Staying proactive and vigilant in establishing business processes for recall preparedness can mean a faster, more efficient approach to isolating recalled product.

There are two primary drivers toward improved traceability in the fresh foods industry—legislation, such as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), and an increase in consumer demand for accurate and complete information about the food products, especially fresh foods that are more prone to spoilage, contamination, and potential harm to the public. Traceability combined with good communication and preparedness will ensure minimal damage when a recall or withdrawal is deemed necessary.
