FDA Recalls and Traceability Requirements - 2018 Trends and Common Issues

Duration: 60 Minutes
With the passage of the FSMA, the documentation review authority of the FDA has increased and enforcement has begun to expand. Not only does the FDA have the authority to mandate product recalls, the records and information they may request to see has also increased. Additional funding is expected to allow even greater sampling and inspection of products and facilities in 2018. The leading causes of Class I recalls are allergen mislabeling, microbiological and foreign material contamination.
FDA Recalls and Traceability Requirements
Instructor: John M Ryan
Product ID: 505974
More and more alerts are being issued at the risk of brand confidence. Following a product recall, it is often a slow recovery for customer sales, not to mention the cost of communication, product return and disposal. There's a lot you can do to make the difference between gaining and losing customers. Developing quality systems that result in good traceability can lessen the impact of a market withdrawal or even recall. It starts with the management team and must include the operators. From lot identification throughout the supply chain, to effectively reviewed recovery exercises, your team must have comprehensive systems and be ready to quickly execute your plan in the event of an incident.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • Self-reporting, trade, consumer, and classes of recalls
  • FSMA expanded authority to stop and seize
  • Product and process liabilities
  • Traceability standards, controls and practices
  • Overlooked transportation issues
  • ISO 22005 traceability standards
  • Current trends and common issues
  • Lot identification at the case, pallet and container levels
  • Recall classifications
Why Should you Attend
In this session, food safety and quality specialist John Ryan will cover traceability requirements and techniques useful in the event of quality deviation investigations and potential FDA recalls. The session will also cover associated information like identification, classification and protocols.

John will cover a variety of technologies at various price levels that are used for tracking and recall. There are quite a variety of potential applications ranging from simple case-level bar code systems to more sophisticated satellite systems that include sensors for explosives, bacteria and other issues, which will be discussed. The session will show test data from a number of these systems in cross country and trans-ocean applications. You will get to explore farm, distribution center, blending operations, pallet level vs. container and case level systems.

John will present an integrated food safety system model that uses traceability, food safety and recall data to demonstrate how computer technology can be used to reduce the time to recall products and reduce the impact to human health. The model is based on the FDA FSMA concept for risk reduction and uses predictive modeling to point investigators in the right direction in the minimum time. At the end of this session, John will handle your specific questions related to the topic.
