The Pictographic Product Recalls CD is designed for use by local health department staff. The CD, used together with an FDA announcement of a product recall, enables local health staff to create product recall materials for distribution in their communities. The CD includes a Guide to Creating pictographic recall alerts, as well as template announcements for use with undeclared ingredients, foreign materials and product contamination announcements and a selection of 26 pictograms for inclusion in the recall notices. With these materials, a local health official can produce a functional product recall notice in 30 minutes or less.
