Recent research from Kansas State University explores five factors that have major financial implications for companies enduring meat and poultry recalls.
The Poultry Industry Is Speaking Highly Of New, Stricter USDA Standards

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.

Adulterated products making their way into the food supply are driving the need for more accountability and ownership of the quality of products and processes. Compounding these pressures, with the viral nature of today’s global environment, even a minuscule adverse event can have disproportionate backlash on branding, reputation, and profitability.
