Recall Plan – Overview
Regulatory standards require the development of a written recall plan when a hazard analysis identifies a food safety hazard which would require a preventive control.
The current Food Safety Modernization Act provides guidance that enables companies to potentially avoid recalls by having proper food safety plans in order.
A recall plan is an incredibly important part of your company’s food safety plan. Why? Because misidentification of allergens, allergen cross-contact, and poor process control practices have led to consumer illnesses and deaths, as well as bankruptcy.
Recall plans can save a company time and money, not to mention quite a few headaches. Through ConnectFood, you and your business can create your recall plan seamlessly by answering a few questions.
