Food Poisoning:

Recall Definition

A company usually decides to recall an item or to take it off the market if there is reason to believe that it is causing or will cause the consumer harm. A recall is a voluntary action that is determined by either a food manufacturer or distributor, though a recall can also be requested by an agency of the federal government. Examples of reasons why a recall might be initiated include the discovery of an allergen that is not noted on the label or the existence of a foodborne pathogen.
