Maintaining the Food Supply From Producer to Retailer

The Department posts food safety alerts to notify consumers of class 1 recalls initiated by the Division of Food Safety and Inspection and the Division of Milk Control and Dairy Services. Their work provides a vital service that is critical in maintaining the safety of the food supply from producer to the retailer.

The Divisions initiate approximately 300 recalls annually. Most of these recalls begin with an observation by a food inspector or a dairy products specialist. Staff members may be prompted to submit a sample to the Department's Food Laboratory for confirmation of any issues related to adulteration and/or misbranding.
