All employees receive food safety training appropriate for their responsibilities within the company.
Hormel Foods has robust food safety and sanitation systems based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points principles to ensure the safety of every product produced.
Food safety systems are overseen by company personnel, independent third parties, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
In 2017, we issued one recall. The recall was for Hormel Health Labs Great Shake™ and Great Shake™ PLUS fortified dairy/soy supplements because the product packaging did not adequately identify the presence of a dairy (milk) allergen in the product. Due to the packaging error, approximately 19,500 cases were recalled.
