As a food manufacturer or retailer you always do your utmost to prevent a recall. Yet, it can happen to the best of us.
Whether it is about a production error, a wrong best-before date, or an error on a label, pack updates are a common occurrence nowadays.
As a food manufacturer or retailer you have responsibilities. In practice, you may even have to choose between taking a product off the market or a recall. Consumers have to be informed as well (via the media and/or shops). The costs are high, and the image of your product and company may also suffer.
Prevention is better than cure.
