When It Comes to Recalls, Supermarkets Are Falling Down on the Job
According to a recent study by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, supermarkets are not taking sufficient trouble to alert consumers to food recalls.
When the group reached out to 26 grocers, most did not respond. The group then searched the retailers’ websites for their store policies, basing the report on what it found. The report has been named “Food Recall Failure.”
The only chains to get passing grades: Harris Teeter, Kroger, Smith’s and Target. Other stores included in the report: Aldi, HyVee, Publix, Trader Joe’s, Wegmans and Winn Dixie.
