Food recalls are pretty common for things like rocks, insects and plastic

  • Food recalls in the US have been on the rise due to contamination with foreign objects such as rocks, insects, and plastic pieces. In 2022, there were nine recalls of over 477,000 pounds of food due to extraneous materials, surpassing the number of recalls for E. Coli contamination.
  • The USDA and FDA ask companies to promptly report potential contamination, and most recalls are voluntary. Detection technology has improved, but some unwanted materials can still be missed, leading to recalls.
  • Recalls are often initiated to ensure consumer safety, but they result in significant food waste as most recalled food ends up in landfills. Consumers are advised to notify manufacturers of foreign materials found in food, but there will always be some level of risk associated with consuming food products.
