Food Recall Notices

  • Issuing food recall notices is an important step in preventing and controlling food-borne and waterborne illnesses and outbreaks.
  • From 2012 to 2016, of the several hundred official food recall notices that were issued, two were part of national outbreaks involving Montana residents, chicken salad, and cucmbers.
  • Food recalls are one part of a larger system to protect human and animal health that includes recalls of cosmetics, animal feed, medical products and other consumables coordinated by the USDA, FDA, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
