How can candy and snack makers manage and avoid product recalls from becoming PR nightmares? Nuts and seeds have been flagged up as the ingredients prompting the most products recalls in the EU in Q2 2016, and hundreds of US snack products were impacted by a recall of sunflower kernels earlier this year. What can manufacturers and their suppliers learn from such incidents: How can they protect themselves and ensure best practice throughout the supply chain. And what should they do if things do go wrong?
