Food Recalls Are on the Rise. Are You Ready?

Stericycle - Protect What MattersA recall is one of the biggest challenges a food company can face. More and more companies have felt the impact in recent years. Consider this:

  • FDA food recalls increased by nearly 33% from 2011 to 2016. USDA recalls went up 16%.
  • The number of units recalled during this time grew even more – by 182% for FDA food units and nearly 46% for USDA recalled pounds.

It could happen to any company at any time. A test may come back positive for bacterial contamination. A supplier could send a notification that a major allergen wasn’t declared properly. A consumer could report finding a foreign material in the product. These moments are not the time companies should figure out what to do. A serious safety issue requires rapid response, and that means being prepared. Stericycle ExpertSOLUTIONS can help you create a robust plan that can be put into action at a moment’s notice, and we can test that plan with a mock recall to ensure there are no gaps when a crisis hits.
