FDA Enforcement and Recall Report Week of July 18

FDA Recalls

Each week the FDA reports on its enforcement activities as a guide to FDA compliance. To help capture and digest that information the FDA Atty blog will post FDA recalls and warning letters.

This week continues the slow roll out of recalls. The biggest burst coming from the continued E. Coli concern with General Mills.  Three of the 8 recalls posted related to the General Mills O121 issue that started about two weeks ago. This latest round captured companies using the flour in their own products. An additional three recalls related to undeclared allergens. A final two medical recalls rounded out the list for the week.

Warning letters are also lite with only two new postings. Both are for illegal drug residue in meat production animals. Although the USDA regulates the production of those animals, the FDA sets the thresholds on animal feed and medicated feeds. Both letters raise issues under this authority.
