Food industry issues in the media

Premier Foods sauce unlikely to be source of botulism

The FSA report into last years botulism case in Scotland last year has indicated that the Premier Foods factory was unlikely to have been the source.
One recall, 47,000 jars of sauce and hard to quantify brand damage.
I wonder how many of the papers will publish articles saying that with the benefit of hindsight this recall was not necessary. I doubt it.
Our food industry supply chain is becoming more exposed to adverse publicity in traditional and new social media and supply chain risk in the round is becoming more complex. No longer is it just a case of food safety risk, we also need to start factoring commercial and business risk into our risk assessments.
