A product recall is the result of breakdown somewhere in the supply chain..
A recent case of misbranding and an undeclared allergen has lead to a product recall. The cause of the recall is unknown. The combination of well defined process and a disciplined approach to managing them greatly reduces the risks.
An ERP system, by design, enforces a discipline based on Best Practices.
Best Practices apply to inbound ingredients, internal operations and customers. The ability to isolate a problem, with Item Tracing, and quickly notify affected parties is key to mitigating a problem.
