Background for product recalls
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have certain product recall policies applicable to consumer products. Most of the time, manufacturers and distributors conduct voluntary recalls of products that FDA regulates. Sometimes, a company identifies a defect and recalls the products on its own.
The manufacturers or distributors of the product carry out most recalls of products regulated by FDA voluntarily. In some instances, a company discovers that one of its products is defective and recalls it entirely on its own. In others, FDA informs a company of findings that one of its products is defective and suggests or requests a recall. Usually, the company will comply.
To evade such recall situations, all food manufacturing companies should implement a sound Food Safety Management program and HACCP. By identifying and eliminating factors affecting quality of the food, these programs ensure that food does not harm human health and that facilities can pass required health inspections.
Recent recall
Recently, Nestlé® RAISINETS® Fun Size Bags (10oz) were recalled voluntarily by Nestlé USA's Confections & Snacks Division.
This was due to the possibility of the product containing undeclared peanuts. The primary issue in this recall was the consumption of this product by people with allergies/sensitivities to peanuts. Nestlé’s move to recall the product was prompted from an angle of caution.
