Safety Award

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.

The safety of our products is of upmost important to us. In 2016, out of an abundance of caution, we issued two voluntary recalls. One recall was for 153 cases of a single code date of SKIPPY® reduced fat creamy peanut butter spread. The second recall was for 450 pounds of Dinty Moore® beef stew.

All employees receive food safety training appropriate for their responsibilities within the company. For more information, visit our corporate site.
