Food Safety Recalls occur when there is a potential for a food item to cause illness. There can be many reasons for a food safety recall, some of which include:
- The identification or discovery of an organism that could potentially make a person sick.
- The discovery of an allergen which was not intended to be in the food item. An example of which would be the inclusion of peanuts in a food item that was not intended to have peanuts.
- The mislabeling or misbranding of a food item.
