Recalls - Draft Proposal 20
Average Rating for this proposal (Based on 3 Ratings):
If FDA determines that a recall is terminated, that information should be disclosed to the public. A recall is considered terminated when FDA determines that all reasonable efforts have been made to remove or correct the product in accordance with the recall strategy and when it is reasonable to assume that the recalled product has been recovered, corrected, reconditioned, or destroyed.
Reasoning: Not only is it important to communicate quickly and effectively to the public when there is a risk associated with a FDA-regulated food, but when possible, it is also important to alert the public when the risk has passed and there is no longer a hazard posed by a specific product. FDA should inform the public when a recall has been completed, which will support public health and further the Administration’s goal of more transparent government. As a result, FDA should disclose the written notification sent to a recalling firm notifying the firm that FDA considers the recall terminated.
