As a food producer clearly, preventing a recall is better than conducting one. Incorporating safety and quality into food manufacturing lowers the overall recall risk. Food safety processes such as hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) and initiatives such as Safe Quality Food (SQF), International Food Standard (IFS), and the British Retail Consortium (BRC) have been established to ensure that safety practices are followed and the safest possible food is produced.
Despite their best efforts; however, sometimes unsafe food products, or those that do not meet legislative requirements, make their way into the marketplace. When an unsafe or violative food product has left the control of the manufacturer/distributor, it must be removed from the market. Every organization should have a recall plan and should conduct drills to ensure the plan’s effectiveness. This helps to guarantee that, in the event of a recall, all of the necessary steps are executed thoroughly and correctly the first time.
Attend this webinar to understand how to develop and implement a cost-effective recall plan that will protect consumers and your brand.
