Withdrawl generally means that there is not a "threat to public safety" for consuming your product, but there is still an issue...generally these are labeling issue....label says 500 ml but its actually 750 ml  

 

A recall (voluntary or not) is due to a threat to public safety (CCP's not being met, undeclared allergen et.)

 

Hope that helps

If you operate in USA, there's a specific definition:

 

(g) Recall means a firm's removal or correction of a marketed product that the Food and Drug Administration considers to be in violation of the laws it administers and against which the agency would initiate legal action, e.g., seizure. Recall does not include a market withdrawal or a stock recovery.

 

 spec Basically, if it violates the FDCA and technically wouldn't be legal to sell, it's technically a recall not a withdrawal. Withdrawal would be for non-regulated issues like spoilage or quality defects, but not mislabeling or something of that nature. Stock recovery is when you maintained control and brought it back (e.g. if you distributed it to a warehouse you own and still had it all on the truck, not a recall).

Hi joyjael,

 

Yr OP is unclear.

 

What do you mean by "extent" ?

 

Is there a specific FS Standard involved ?

 

Are you asking for the difference in meaning between the terms  recall and wirhdrawal ?

 

If so, as per previous Posts, the answer depends on the location of the recall.
