Thanks to the Food Safety Modernization Act, you now have a helpful new tool to find out. As mandated by the updated law in January, the Food and Drug Administration has cleaned up its recall directory site, making search for recalled foods a little easier on the consumer.
Launched on Monday, the new site clearly displays every product recalled since 2009. Items are listed in a chart by date, brand name and product name. The chart also includes photos, the reason for the recall, if the recall is still in effect and a link to the original FDA press release.
The site includes all FDA-regulated products under recall, including drugs, veterinary products, medical devices -- and a few million eggs.
