The FDA now provides a Product Recall Page where sorting and search functions display information in an easy-to-read format. Updates on the status of certain food recalls, such as mandatory recalls under FDA’s FSMA authority are also provided. The new law also gives FDA authority to mandate food recalls under certain circumstances.
FDA also collaborates with other federal agencies. The government-wide FoodSafety.gov web site provides a widget that displays the latest recalls and food safety alerts from both FDA and USDA. If you have a mobile device, such as an Android phone, you may be able to download an application to get recalls direct to your phone by going to http://www.Recalls.gov6.
When there are major recalls, FDA will also create special web pages and other resources so you can rapidly learn whether your product is on the recall list. Information on some past major product recalls is available at Major Product Recalls.
