Food Hub Allergens and Recall Alerts Resources

Keeping an eye on the product recalls provides insights as to specific ingredients and products. These recalls may provide a trend as to the types of ingredients and/or products that are currently posing food safety risks. This information may also provide details of a company, possibly a supplier, that has products that are on this list as well. This list will also identify the severity of the risk and the physical locations where the products or ingredients are distributed.
