About Food Recalls

Food recalls are a way to remove unsafe human and pet food from commerce and consumers’ homes.

Recalls are announced by the companies who make or sell the products and the federal agencies that regulate the products. In the United States, FSIS (USDA) food recalls are for meat, poultry, and eggs (or products containing any of these items), whereas FDA food recalls cover just about everything else (about 80% of the American food supply). In Canada, the centralized CFIA oversees all food-related recalls.

Government agencies and food companies monitor food products, outbreak data, and consumer complaints for a variety of potential hazards, such as viral and bacterial contamination, allergens, and foreign objects (like metal or plastic).

Consuming contaminated food can lead to serious illness and, sometimes, death. Food poisoning (or foodborne illness) may also cause long-term consequences which greatly impact one’s quality of life.

Being informed about recent food recalls helps you and your loved ones identify and avoid potentially harmful food products, as well as take appropriate action if you have already consumed a recalled product.

The information presented in our Food Recall Alerts has been gathered from original sources including the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the Food Safety News, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others.
