Food Recalls Safeguard Public Health

Potentially Harmful Food Products can be removed from the Market by the Food Recall Process

Once a food product is marketed to a wide range of consumers in different markets, unexpected problems can occur. Some common problems include contamination at the processing stage that may leave an organism in the product that could make consumers ill, mislabeling of a product or the discovery of a potential allergen in the product.

Mobile Vending

Movable Food Service Regulations

Mobile vending operations refer to a readily movable truck, trailer, or push cart food service. Food provided by mobile venders comes from a business that is licensed and inspected by a health authority. Mobile units must be serviced and re-supplied from a fixed and licensed commissary to which they return daily.
