Recall Readiness: Lessons Learned and a Look Ahead


FoodLogiQ’s new E-Book,“Recall Readiness: Lessons Learned & a Look Ahead,” details some of the major food recall events and foodborne illness outbreaks of 2020, as well as ways to establish recall modernization within your own organization.

Recalls are bound to happen in the food industry. While no organization wants to be at the center of a major outbreak or Class I recall, all organizations throughout the food supply chain must be prepared for this reality. In 2020, we witnessed several high-profile recalls with nationwide impact. From seafood, to produce, to onions and leafy greens, as well as hand sanitizers, which are being sold by many food retailers and used widely in essential businesses for health and safety practices. These major recalls come amid additional stresses brought on by challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
