Managing Product Recalls and Contamination in the Seafood Industry


The seafood industry is often under the microscope during a food borne outbreak and when the evidence is strong it is always followed by a recall; some out of extreme precautionary measures and others out of necessity. Even without an official recall, the threat of contamination is ever-present.

With a rise in food-related recalls in recent years, traceability systems are essential to identify the source of the problem and take appropriate corrective measures. Without a strong traceability capability, it will be harder to pinpoint the sources of contamination, and if you have a recall, you will likely end up disposing an excessive amount of product and lose money. Learn how to protect your company and take the correct precautions.
