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:

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