related post to the LinkedIn Group, the question is asked about whether or not voluntary recalls are sufficiently
proactive. You may view posted comments here: http://lnkd.in/C-Vvjc
Incidentally, this GMA white paper provides at least some basis for assessing the industry’s food safety and quality management progress in the years following 2011, with particular attention to the number of grocery chains affected by product recall events. Where do you think the direction will be from the 58% reported in 2011, down, up or the same?
It may seem that consumers are in a better position to conclude that industry professionals who say they are providing solutions merely "are the idiots running the show". No industry professional should be categorized as such. However, without respectable results for their work, such a categorization may be justified.
Recalls may prevent harm to consumers but they do not ensure consumer satisfaction. They may prevent more casualties but they do nothing to prevent the cause.They do nothing for business profitability or survival. For these reasons and more, recalls must be prevented from occurring by the professionals who are providing the solutions. Known proactive strategies in product safety and quality management could be adopted to accomplish recall prevention. The GCSE-Food & Health Protection SSQA proposal incorporates the development and implementation of proactive and pragmatic strategies.
