It seems like everyday there is a new recall being issued. Often the recall is a low risk and more precautionary than anything. However, there have been many important recalls in recent weeks that went unmentioned on my local news here in Baltimore, MD.
Whether you are in a commercial setting or you are a home cook you need to be informed of current recalls. There are many sources for staying current with recalls. The best is straight from the FDA http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/default.htm . I also like the recalls.gov app for my smart phone. Of course, when I see a recall I think needs mentioning I will post it on my Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/MarylandFoodHandler and on twitter https://twitter.com/smf_foodsafety
Stay food safe and stay informed!
