Food Services of America conducts an ongoing system-wide quality assurance program that provides inspection of, and care for, the integrity of the food products that we distribute on behalf of our vendors and suppliers.

We also work very closely with state and local departments of health in engaging immediate product recall procedures.

We hope you'll take advantage of our ServSafe certification courses and our food safety related articles found throughout


Food Services of America knows the importance of delivering recall information in a timely manner, and that's why we established an efficient process to notify those customers affected. Whether it's a small product hold or system wide recall, we take every notification seriously.

Food Services of America will respond to a market withdrawal, product hold and/or product recall based upon the information provided by the FDA, USDA and or the manufacturer of the item.

• Our branch specific HACCP Food Safety Coordinator’s will check the code or codes in question against the product in the warehouse and storage, and isolate product if found.

• Customer call lists will be generated for the customers who bought the product involved in the recall.

• Customers will be contacted if they purchased the recalled product by an automated recall system or directly by a customer service associate with a 2-4 hour target time frame after Food Services of America is notified.
