  • Accidents on the way from your facility to the distribution center can also be a major cause of headache for manufacturers.
  • Picture an overturned trailer, or the highway littered with your product.  Once that happens, your shipment of food is ruined and must be disposed of with assurances.  
  • Situations like these can result in large inventory on hand that must be managed properly.
  • Management can entail isolation, treatment, destruction, and disposal. Because swift action is often necessary during recalls,  U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service advise that food processing companies get in touch with a disposal company to handle product disposal in the event that it’s necessary.

Food recalls occur when there is reason to believe that a food may cause consumers to become ill. A food manufacturer or distributor initiates the recall to take foods off the market. In some situations, food recalls are requested by government agencies (USDA or FDA) when a problem is spotted in a facility inspection.

Food Recalls are a fact of life  for companies in the food industry. Hardly a week goes by without another announced recall. According the the USDA, there were 131 incidents and close to 21 million pounds of food recalled in 2017. The primary reasons for outbreaks is as follows:

  • Cross Contamination
  • Pathogens
  • Physical Contamination

No company in the industry from large to small is immune from an outbreak, and recovering from the sometimes devastatingly expensive recall process can be difficult, so it’s obviously best to avoid problems whenever possible.

 over-forecasting of demand or weather related transportation issues, you may have too much of one product on your hands or in your warehouse.  In order to protect your brand, destruction is more preferable than having less than fresh product hitting shelves, or worse ending up in a discount retailer eroding your brand reputation.

It’s best to have these products destroyed by a reputable company with proof of destruction.
