Procedures for Collecting 24 Hour Food Recalls Mobile App
"The Procedures for Collecting 24 Hour Food Recalls mobile app provides an electronic food record that can be used when there is a food product recall or when trying to track down the source of foodborne illnesses.
How does it work?
The app provides helpful tips and questions that can be used when collecting data from consumers on food consumption.
When a food product company is faced with a product recall or when it receives a potential recall notice, food safety inspectors can quickly and easily conduct food intake interviews using a smartphone or tablet. Instead of using paper forms when evaluating food frequency and dietary assessments, the app manages all the details electronically. Having an accurate record of food consumption for a 24 hour time period can help assess the need for a voluntary recall when it is determined that a particular food has caused an illness, and can help medical professionals diagnose related cases of food poisoning.
