New recall information: USDA to list retail stores receiving recalled meat and poultry products
July 11, 2008
Retail stores receiving meat and poultry products involved in Class I recalls – those with the most serious health consequences – will soon be listed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, according to an announcement from the department.
The identity of retail stores with recalled meat and poultry from their suppliers has been a missing piece of information for the public during a recall. With this information, people can be on the lookout for recalled meat and poultry at their local store.
A list of retail stores that receive food subject to Class I recalls will be posted on the USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service Web site within about three to ten business days of a recall release. The list also will be shared with state and local public health officials.
A Class I recall is one that involves a reasonable probability of serious health consequences or death for those with weakened immune systems.
What a resource. Love your blog... when I get a few minutes I plan to spotlight it and list it on mine. www.playwitmenana.blogspot.com Would that be OK with you?
