Get Ready, Get Set, Go! 5 Tips for Successful Mock Recalls

At FoodLogiQ, we often get the question, “How can I be prepared and ready to respond when an outbreak or recall affects our organization?” Mock recalls are a great way to prepare for a live recall, because they allow your organization to practice, test and improve processes to ensure you are prepared for a live event.

FoodLogiQ Connect's Recall + Response solution empowers organizations to respond to food withdrawals and recalls with speed and accuracy. It also offers the ability to test recall effectiveness with unlimited mock recalls. The features and functionality utilized during a live recall are the exact features and functionality used when conducting mock recalls.

To truly measure the efficiency of your mock recall process, your entire team should treat this recall as if it is a live event, minus the public communication. This will allow you to measure your efficacy and make proper adjustments to your recall plan before being faced with a real-life incident.

It’s important to note that the Preventive Controls requirement within the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) calls for any facility that identifies a hazard requiring a preventive control to have a written recall plan. The best way to test the effectiveness of your recall plan is through a series of mock recalls.
