The CFIA classifies recalls based on the level of health risk associated with the food product being recalled.
The following message is from the FlyerMall Team.
The FlyerMall Team has inserted these links to inform and educate our loyal followers on issues related to most of the recalls made by the CFIA.
The CFIA is an organization which is able to assess the level of danger to the general public on potential recall products.
Although a recalled product may sound like a simple matter, in reality, it is a very costly procedure for both the company producing the product and the government to follow up.
It is possible for a recalled product to cause a company to go out of business because of the negative publicity.
Some companies purposely avoid declaring certain ingredients on the list of ingredients panel for one reason or another, although they are aware of falsifying information to consumers.
Generally, a consumer innocently examines the list of ingredients on the label to identify items which may trigger a possible negative reaction if ingested, for example, eggs, peanuts, gluten, lactose, allergens, etc.
Many consumers may have been advised by their doctors that they may have potentially fatal reactions to some of the above-listed items and that is why they examine the labels carefully to avoid singing the famous song ... "Goodbye, my love goodbye".
The CFIA is similar to a policing authority monitoring the situation and companies who purposely try to beat the system. Companies who knowingly falsify the list of ingredients should be severely punished in addition to having products recalled.
The CFIA's responsibilities are a huge portfolio of issues that have to be faced on a daily basis, therefore, it is important for the consumer to examine product labels and should there be any questions, address the issues directly to the manufacturing company to obtain the correct answer.
Most companies have a customer service department to answer inquiries. However, if within the conversation you are not satisfied with the response, then, you should report your suspicions to the CFIA for their own investigation.
