Responding to a Food Recall

Although the United States food supply is among the safest in the world, sometimes food may be unsafe or mislabeled. When there is reason to believe food is unsafe or mislabeled, the food is recalled or otherwise removed from commerce. The food recall process for school nutrition programs differs depending on whether the recall affects USDA Foods or commercially purchased foods. This resource was developed to provide an overview of the recall process for USDA Foods with a focus on school nutrition programs.
