Recall service certified by HACCP Australia

GS1 Australia’s Recall service has been certified as “effective and suitable for businesses that operate an HACCP-based food-safety program”.

Recall is an electronic product recall notification management system designed to minimise the impact and cost of food and beverage products recalled and withdrawn from the supply chain.

HACCP Australia is a leading food-science organisation specialising in the HACCP food-safety methodology. HACCP (hazard analysis critical control point) is a risk-management methodology used by the food and beverage industry for the identification, evaluation and control of food-safety hazards.

GS1 Australia General Manager Marketing and Quality Services Richard Jones says the certification of Recall is a major milestone for HACCP-compliant food suppliers in the Australian food and grocery industry.

“Recall is the first online recall portal to be approved and certified by HACCP,” he said. “This means that in the event of a product recall or withdrawal, subscribers of the Recall service will have access to a convenient and effective means of complying with HACCP requirements for recall communications such as notifications, reporting and tracking of communications.”

HACCP Australia Technical Director Martin Stone says HACCP protocols are designed to ensure consumer safety by preventing as many food hazards as possible.

“Recall is an effective online solution that maximises the effectiveness of a product recall, which can reduce the risk to consumer safety,” he said.
