Product Recalls & Safety Alerts

In the United States, the FDA regulates the food and drugs available to consumers and animals alike. The FDA offers a website where you can find the latest information on Recalls, safety alerts and products withdrawn from the market. Recalls are actions taken by a firm to remove a product from the market. There are three types of recalls; they may be conducted on a firm’s own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority. To check the list of Recalls and Withdrawals you can visit the FDA website.

The FDA also provides information gathered from press releases and other public notices about certain recalls of FDA-regulated products, safety alerts and product recalls related to animal health here.
