A food recall can happen to anyone. The goal of a recall is to remove a food product from commerce when there is reason to believe it may be adulterated (injurious to health or unfit for human consumption) or misbranded (false or misleading labeling and/or packaging). Managing a recall successfully depends on how well prepared you are — having current information and understanding recall policies are critical.
FMI staff is available to FMI members 24/7 for guidance in the event of a recall, food safety emergency, or other security and loss prevention issues. Contact Information for 24 Hour Crisis Notification and Support.
