Food recalls are issued when something contaminates products before they are shipped for distribution yet the manufacturer or producer is unaware the items pose a health risk. It can be time-consuming keeping up with the latest recalls and safety notices. Fortunately, the FDA provides an easy widget that makes the process simple.
You can see the latest food recalls in the widget below. The recalls are nationwide and encourage the information needed to identify why a product was recalled, the health risks associated with each item and what can be done if you purchased the product.
The U.S. Food and Safety website is a one-stop resource that will help consumers keep up-to-date with the latest food recalls and news as well as provide food safety tips.
Many news stations provide information regarding the latest recall, but it isn’t always reliable that you will get the full story.
Using the food safety widget will help you keep you and your family safe.
