U.S. Health Alerts Food Recalls 

By Patrick Mansfield  | U.S. Health Alerts

Follow These Three Steps If You Have Purchased A Recalled Product.

Step 1 – Product Identification

Products that are recalled are those specifically produced items at a particular time period. You should know that all food recalls are quite specific. To be on the safe side, ensure the following:
  • Check if you have a different product from the same producer before throwing the panic button.
  • If the product is the same, find out what the sell-by date is. If the date is different or if it is in another size category, you are on safe grounds.
  • The product you have might not exactly be covered by the announcement, which means it is out of the recall. 

Step 2 – Determine Why There Is a Recall
  • Check the reason why it has been recalled; some of the reasons include improper labeling, contamination by bacteria or presence of unwanted objects.
  • There might not be any mention of an allergen in the product. None of your family will be in danger if no one is allergic.
  • Return a product that is recalled for containing unwanted substances/objects.
  • If you ate it but you never discovered any object, then you are safe. But products with objects should be returned.
  • Products recalled for bacterial contamination must be returned.
  • If you ate it a few days earlier and you are not sick, you probably cooked it well and you are not in danger. But you should be on the lookout for food poisoning symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea. Do not hesitate to see your doctor.
Step 3 – How to Handle a Product Recalled
You should immediately return a recalled product to the purchase point. They can destroy it or send it back to the manufacturer.
