So we all work diligently to ensure we've done all that we can to help ensure a safe and healthy food supply and then I read this incredibly disheartening article;
"This investigation, which reviewed 30 of 1,557 food recalls between 2012 and 2015, found that the FDA "did not always have an efficient and effective food-recall process that ensured the safety of the nation's food supply."
In these cases, food companies took an average of 57 days to recall items after the FDA learned of the possible health hazards, the report revealed."
57 days!!!! Profits before people
I truly hope yours isn't one of these kind of companies
""They're trying to walk a fine line," said LaBorde, who was not involved in the investigation. "They don't want to be too fast on the trigger, because they've been burned in the past on issuing recalls. It's a huge economic effect on an industry. It could wipe them out. But on the other hand, if people start dying, that's even worse than the recall." (they being the FDA)
