Download PDF Version of FMI Board Policy Regarding Recall Authority

  • The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) supports granting the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) the authority to mandate a recall when a company refuses or delays to voluntarily recall a product that FDA and/or USDA have determined poses an imminent and substantial risk of serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals.
  • This authority should be used to enhance systems currently in place and foster clear and accurate communication.
