Little wonder then that the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the industry with such a tight leash. It‘s not an accident that "Food" is the first word in the agency‘s name.
Food Traceability: Solving The Imperative Of Compliance
Consumers’ confidence in the food they consume is eroding. The numbers quickly illustrate why: in the last few years FDA food recalls increased nearly 400%, largely due to salmonella and undeclared allergens1. Ghastly stories such as contaminated foods causing deaths across several states further diminish consumers’ confidence in food—and in the retailers where they purchased the recalled produce.
