FSANZ launches ‘template’ for food recall plans

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 14th June 2016

NotebookFood Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has developed a Food Recall Plan ‘template’ to help food businesses manage recalls.

FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Steve McCutcheon said every food business needs to be able to quickly remove unsafe food from the marketplace to protect the health and safety of consumers.

“The template developed by FSANZ is particularly aimed at helping smaller businesses ensure they have a food recall plan in place and know what to do if something goes wrong,” McCutcheon said.

“The Food Recall Plan template is in an easy to follow, quick-reference style document that will help businesses manage food recalls.”

“This resource is an important addition to our other food recall resources for businesses, such as the Food Industry Recall Protocol.”

The Food Recall Plan template and Food Industry Recall Protocol are both available for download from the FSANZ website.
