FDA Enforcement Report

Every week the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posts an Enforcement Report that details the recalls the agency is monitoring. These recalls are usually not listed in press releases, even though some of the products could be quite dangerous.

Recalls are classified in different ways. Sometimes the company involved issues a recall over the phone or by snail mail, and the FDA has to operate under strict regulations. So check back here every Thursday and we’ll list all of the recalls related to food and food products. We’ll link to the recalls we’ve already told you about.
