2023 FDA Food Recalls

Does something in your fridge seem “not quite right”?  Or maybe you are you a food manufacturer and want to see if any recent recalls are affecting your suppliers or competition? Either way, please check out our list of 2023 FDA food recalls.

FDA Food Recalls Happen For Several Reasons

1. Undeclared Allergens

This happens when a company does not list an allergen included in their product on the product label. Omitting an allergen from your label can trigger a countrywide recall forcing stores to pull your product from their shelves. Some allergens such as peanuts and nuts can be life threatening and if you fail to list these on your label can cause serious health issues. Other allergens such as wheat and soy might not trigger an anaphylactic response, but exposing sensitive people to allergens can negatively affect their health and your reputation as a company. 

Always check your labeling before sending a product to market to make sure all allergens are listed accurately. 

Products without allergens can sometimes be exposed to allergens during production due to poor allergen containment or mixing errors. This is one of the reasons a HACCP plan needs to be in place so accidents like these rarely happen. 

2. Biological Contamination

Sometimes during food production, storage, distribution or any other step in-between biological pathogens can be introduced. Bacterias, viruses, molds and parasites are all biological hazards.

3. Chemical Contamination

Chemicals that are used in the production of food like machine sanitizers and oils can sometimes be introduced into the food being processed.

4. Physical Hazards

Physical hazards like pieces of metal from machinery or glass from broken packaging are examples of physical hazards.

5. Adulteration of Foods

This is usually because of fraud. Here’s an interesting article about adulterated spices that were tested in the European Union.
