USDA Adds Food Recall Alerts On FoodKeeper App
The residents of the US will now be updated on food recalls as soon as it happens through the FoodKeeper app by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Food recalls happen when the ingredient information isn’t accurate or is incomplete. For e.g. undeclared allergens like peanuts or even bacterial contamination in the food.
The app’s new feature will now make the consumers make the right choice while food shopping. The users will be alerted through notifications which can switched on or off in the app settings. This app actually has been doing a lot regarding food safety since its launch in 2015. It even gives information on 500 and more food items and how long it will last in the consumer’s refrigerator, freezer or even in the pantry. The list includes dairy, eggs, meat, poultry, produce, seafood and even provides cooking methods. Plus, the users can request information on the foods which are not listed.
