Today, Americans eat from the safest food supply in the world. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) helps ensure your food is produced and sold in a safe manner. The MDA also provides information to consumers on proper handling and preparation of foods to help you avoid foodborne illnesses.  Despite state and federal regulations, recalls may be issued by food manufactures, distributors, retailers or government agencies for safety or quality issues. 

For further information about food recalls, please check the United States Department of Agriculture or the Food & Drug Administration websites.
