In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration first exercised new powers granted under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) to shut down processing at the Sunland, Inc. company’s peanut plant in New Mexico. The total cost of this recall is believed to have exceeded $1 billion with lawsuits still pending.
A recent survey by Red Prairie revealed that only 52% of food companies can execute a recall within hours as is expected with modern technology. Perhaps that is because 81% of companies surveyed were using either paper-based or only partially automated systems.
