A Long Way to Go For Grocery Stores
A Long Way to Go For Grocery Stores

Although recalled food products may pose a significant health risk to consumers, you may be surprised how often customers aren’t made aware of the current threats posed by the food they consume on a regular basis. In many situations, it’s reasonable to expect that a grocery store would provide up-to-date recall information to customers.According to a new study undertaken by the US Public Interest Research Group, however, nearly 84% of the grocery stores surveyed failed to offer this important information to customers.

Interesting, well over half of the very same stores being surveyed were found to have a notification system in place which can transmit this information to consumer. Due to a lack of use guides or public notifications, however, consumers rarely if ever take advantage of these services.

Assessing the Risk

The reason why it is so essential for customers to have this information during their visit to the grocery store is simple: in the event that someone has bought a product and stored it in their freezer over the l0ng-term, they may receive information about a recall which simply wasn’t in place yet at the time they purchased this product. This type of notification can help ensure that customers are always up-to-date on the safety of the products they consume, no matter how long ago they purchased them.

With hazardous meat and poultry recalls up nearly 85% since 2013, their is a dire need for accurate and transparent recall notification services. If you are currently unaware how to obtain this information, take a moment to visit the customer service desk at your preferred store and ask about available notification system. The chances are good that you will find what you are looking for!
