Recalls

 

Food recalls occur when there is evidence that a food product may cause consumers to become ill. A recall may be initiated by a food manufacturer, distributor, or government agencies like the USDA or FDA. Reasons for a recall may include discovery of an organism or potential allergen in a product that may sicken consumers or mislabeling of a food product.
