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. Discovery of these or other problems may lead to a food recall initiated by either the manufacturer or distributor or requested by government regulatory agencies (USDA or FDA.)
