Decision-making factors in considering a food recall

A potential food recall scenario is a high-pressure situation that requires the directors and food business management teams to make quick but critically important decisions. A food business can make its decision-making processes easier by improving its preparation and ensuring that critical information and data analysis is readily available to help inform the decision-making process from the earliest stage of an emerging event. This article considers factors in determining whether a recall is necessary. It is important to recognise the desirability for external legal assistance such as is provided by FoodLegal, at the time when a problem is emerging and also in preparing systems that will mitigate problems before a real-case crisis ever emerges.
