The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has provided additional information affecting Class I and Class II recalls of meat and poultry products based on statutory requirements that became effective July 1, 2007.  

According to the state, any meat or poultry supplier, distributor, processor or broker that sells meat or poultry associated with a Class I or Class II USDA recall must immediately notify CDPH by e-mail at FDBINFO@CDPH.CA.GOV or by phone during normal business hours at (916) 650-6500 and provide the department with a list of all customers who received any product subject to the recall, including a firm name, address, contact person's name, telephone number, fax, and email address.

In addition, suppliers, distributors, processors, and brokers shall immediately notify all customers who received the recalled product and keep a log of these notifications to be provided to the Department if requested.
