Staying current with food safety recalls is difficult, because there are generally several on a daily basis. For example, on June 3rd, there were eight recalls, five of them due to listeria monocytogenes found in products during routine testing. Most commonly, foods are recalled due to harmful pathogens being present, such as listeria, E. coli, and salmonella; undeclared allergens such as eggs, peanuts, and fish; and the possibility of contamination.
While the FDA has an app that can send alerts to your phone in the event of recalls, as well as an active presence on Twitter to help keep the public informed, it is very important to ensure that food is as clean as possible before preparing, cooking, serving, or eating. Often the presence of harmful pathogens isn’t detected until after the food has already been shipped to stores and people have fallen ill.
