The FDA alerts and recalls provide information gathered from public notices and press releases about food allergen related recalls of FDA-regulated products. Not all recalls have press releases or are posted on this page. FAACT will only post recalls and alerts reported by the FDA, USDA, and manufacturers regarding the top 8 food allergens recognized by the FDA. FAACT will not post non-food items with the exception of medications, under the advisement of our Medical Advisory Board. See Archives to sort by specific allergen.
This draft guidance, when finalized, will replace existing guidance, CPG Sec 555.250 Statement of Policy for Labeling and Preventing Cross-contact of Common Food Allergens, for FDA staff on FDA's enforcement policy regarding major food allergen labeling and cross-contact.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Food Allergy Research and Resource Program
FARRP, founded by Steve Taylor, was established in 1995 as an industry-funded consortium and cooperative venture between the University of Nebraska and seven founding industry charter members. Today, FARRP has more than 105 member companies, 8 Faculty members, more than 25 staff members and several graduate students. Dr. Joe Baumert, a FAACT medical advisor, is the Director.
FARRP has two primary missions:
Develop and provide the food industry with credible information, expert opinions, tools, and services relating to allergenic foods.
Develop and provide the food and related industries with credible information, expert opinions, tools, and services relating to novel foods and food ingredients including genetically modified products.
FARRP takes a comprehensive approach working with and collaborating with research institutions, governmental authorities, consumer groups, and scientific societies around the globe to share our experience and knowledge to improve the safety of food products for consumers with food allergies and sensitivities.
The majority of food manufacturers/producers react speedily and responsibly when they hear that one of their products may have caused a reaction, but unfortunately not all do. If you feel the response you got from the food manufacturer/producer was not satisfactory, you can contact the FARRP laboratory directly to discuss the possibility of having the suspected food analyzed. The lab personnel will require details from the food packaging so have it to hand when you call. Even if the food manufacturer responds appropriately and even if they ask for the remaining food, you may wish to send a portion of the food to the FARRP laboratory for analysis; this is your decision.
The telephone number to call is 402-472-4484. The lab is open 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday - Friday (central time zone). It is closed weekends, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (Thursday and Friday), and the week of Christmas Eve to New Years Day.
