Just so I understand - a supplier to your company has a recall in effect for eggs - they sell eggs to your company and you make a "meal" that that your company sells.


Yes, you are subject to issuing a recall in accordance with 2.6.0


You are required under SQF code to send an immediate message detailing the problem/recall to 

Safe Quality Food Institute



And then contact you CB at whatever emergency method they have in place -email or phone #.


There are consquences for not contacting SQFI and the CB which include certification suspension.
