Magneco Food exports Recall Plan

Recall Plan

Facilities covered by the PCHF Rule are required to have a written recall plan if they have any foods with a “hazard requiring a preventive control,” as determined based on their hazard analysis.  The regulations require the recall plan to include procedures that describe the steps to be taken, and assign responsibility for taking those steps, for the following actions, as appropriate to the facility:

  1. Directly notify the direct consignees of the food being recalled, including how to return or dispose of the affected food;
  2. Notify the public about any hazard presented by the food when appropriate to protect public health;
  3. Conduct effectiveness checks to verify that the recall is carried out; and
  4. Appropriately dispose of recalled food—e.g., through reprocessing, reworking, diverting to a use that does not present a safety concern, or destroying the food.

FDA also recommends that the recall plan include procedures for notifying FDA about a recall (i.e., notifying the appropriate FDA Recall Coordinator), including procedures for notifying FDA about a Reportable Food under the Reportable Food Registry.


What is a recall?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines a recall as actions taken by a firm to remove a product from the market. A well-designed recall plan will help to effectively locate the recalled product, remove it from the market, and locate the source of error in the product. It serves a guide for the company to follow if a situation requiring a recall presents itself. Recalls can be conducted on a firm’s own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority. If a situation requiring a recall does present itself, it is in the company’s best interest to recall a product before an outbreak occurs.
