Food Safety News

The number of recalls went up in 2021 but public warnings dropped in Switzerland, according to recently published figures.

The Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) published 18 public warnings and 61 recalls for food in 2021 compared to 28 warnings and 49 recalls the year before. Recalls are published by companies and public warnings are made by Swiss authorities.

Most alerts this past year concerned pathogens such as Listeria nine times, Salmonella on six occasions, and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) twice.
