At Agorasys, we’ve updated our RecallCheck program to version 2. With this version, we now have an online database of food recalls based on the fda recall site that we search, instead of launching a web search based on variations of the barcode. With this new structure we are able to offer better results. One cool new feature of the improved results is the ability to call the recalling company directly from the application.
Because not all of the FDA recalls include barcodes (e.g. bulk peanuts), it isn’t possible to see all of the results in our database yet. Our next feature will be adding a keyword search that allows for searching across all of the recalls using words instead of barcodes in order to easily find recalls based on manufacturer, food type, recall reason etc.
