Food safety is a top priority for the entire foodservice supply chain, and the ability to execute recalls quickly and effectively is a critical element in a strong food safety program. To support clear understanding of what information is needed for an effective and efficient recall, the International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) and the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) have released a complimentary pamphlet entitled Essential Information for an Effective and Efficient Product Recall. The pamphlet details the information distributors need from manufacturers to remove recalled product from the supply chain. It was created by a joint IFDA-IFMA food safety effort organized through the Supply Chain Optimization Resources and Execution (SCORE) initiative.

Both IFDA and IFMA are strongly committed to helping member companies ensure that their food safety programs are strong and effective. The pamphlet will help provide the foodservice industry with a greater understanding of what is needed to allow companies to act quickly in order to remove product from the supply chain in the event of a recall.

This information has been provided to IFDA and IFMA members by mail with a recommendation that it be shared with quality assurance and other personnel involved in recall activity, as well as with supply chain partners. The pamphlet is available as a single page PDF, and on the home page of the IFDA and IFMA Web sites.
