God forbid you need to recall product, but if you do, Wayne Labs at Food Engineering offers advice for narrowing in on defective items using single-system ERP software.

Labs recommends choosing an industry-specific ERP system to encompass traceability, FSMA, and business process integration.

Linking a warehouse management system (WMS) to your ERP can also help identify anomalies and prevent cross-contamination early on. Don’t rely on the integrity of packaging alone. Train employees to detect everything from packing issues to allergens.

Thorough quality control measures will also help you manage a recall. The GPS and proof-of-delivery applications that you use every day are also important when you need to determine exactly where and when recalled items were sent.
