The FSMS Food Recall Checklist Template should be used when carrying out a food recall. FS1190-1 FOOD RECALL CHECKLIST identifies responsibilities at the administrative (Part 1) and operational site level (Part 2). The checklist should be completed with the name of the person responsible and the completion date for each task.
The Food Safety Team Leader will initiate a product recall when a nonconformity having potential food safety consequences is identified. Such nonconformity may be identified through internal control measures, customer complaints, or regulatory requests. The Food Safety Team Leader should ensure that recalled product can be located, supervise any inventory counts, and account for all recalled food. Logs and other records related to product recalls should be audited (annually, at a minimum), to determine if recall procedures are being properly implemented and continue to meet statutory/regulatory requirements.
