Annual FDA Reportable Food Registry Report available for review
All domestic and foreign entries for the registry’s fourth year of operation, Sept. 8, 2012 to Sept. 3, 2013, are included in the report.
The FDA said the report again shows the importance of the registry as a “valuable tool in tracking patterns of food adulteration and helping to remove dangerous products from the marketplace.”
Events with the largest amount of submitted reports included 207 entries of Salmonella Bredeney in peanut butter; 80 entries of Listeria monocytogenes in imported smoked salmon; and 69 entries of E. coli 0121 in frozen foods.
The registry was established in 2007 and required FDA to establish a way for instances of reportable food to be submitted electronically within 24 hours.
