Recalls Known to Affect Montana

When recalls are received by DPHHS the first thing we do is determine if the recall affects Montana (i.e. was the product distributed to retail outlets in the state).  If it was, or we believe it may have been, we issue a recall notice to the local health departments.  These notices fall into one of three categories:

  • Level 3 Advisory  Recall Level 3 - Advisory
    Advisory recalls means no information is known whether the food product is in Montana 
  • Level 2 Discretionary  Recall Level 2 - Discretionary
    Discretionary recalls means the food product may be or is in Montana, but exact information is not known
  • Level 1 Action needed  Recall Level 1 - Action Needed
    Action needed recalls means the food product is in Montana, or the action is warranted
