The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Standards Scotland (FSS) have developed guidance to help food businesses carry out food safety withdrawals and recalls with greater ease and effectiveness. The Anaphylaxis Campaign were involved in the development of the guidance as members of Food Recalls Steering Group and one of the Working Groups, along with representatives from local authorities and the food industry.
The guidance explains what the law requires and how to comply. It also includes best practice on traceability system and how to inform consumers of a food recall.
