FDA Safety Recalls

Product liability is a legal issue that can lead to serious consumer injury or illness. When a manufacturer releases a product to the general public for consumption, it is their responsibility to have previously ensured through testing that the product is safe to use and free of defects.

The FDA ensures the safety of approximately 80 percent of all food consumed in the United States.

They regulate all except meat, poultry and certain egg products, which are regulated by the U. S. Department of Agriculture.

A food recall occurs when there is reason to believe it will cause consumers to become ill. In most cases the food manufacturer initiates the recall to take that specific product off the shelves; however, in some cases, the recall is requested by the FDA or USFA.

Reasons for a food recall include:

  • Discovery of an organism which may make a consumer sick
  • Discovery of a potential allergen in the product
  • Mislabeling or misbranding of food - contains nuts or eggs, but those ingredients do not appear
    on the label
