Avoid Food Recall with Root Cause Analysis

food recall

At my weekly grocery trip checkout, I was informed of a food recall on ground turkey I had purchased the week prior. The cashier was notified that something I purchased had been recalled, and the item detail printed on my receipt for reference. Per the article I found, the cause is listed as “extraneous materials, specifically blue plastic” as noted from consumer complaints.

An estimated 1 in 6 people get sick each year in the U.S. from foodborne diseases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Root cause analysis/incident investigation is an effective approach to fix accidents/incidents in the food industry.

Consider the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Process. It can be used proactively as well as reactively.
