What are we learning about food safety?

May 4th, 2011

That’s a really good question and the follow up should be how are we applying those learning’s. Or are we?

Yesterday Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc., a California-based food supplier for a number of retail companies announced the recall of grape tomatoes produced by one of their growers based on a possible salmonella contamination.

Here’s the title of a post from three years ago on cherry tomatoes which are basically the same product, “I say Tomato, and you say Tomah to. I ate some last night”!

So the question is what have we learned and how has it been applied to these products. Food recalls cost money. They create lost revenue for retailers and lost work hours for consumers affected by the illness they cause.

If you are a retailer or a supplier affected by these recalls and you want to improve performance, give SafeSourcing a call.

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
