FDA Publishes Reportable Food Registry Database

  • On January 5, 2022, FDA published an interactive public data dashboard that will allow anyone to view historical data from the Reportable Food Registry (RFR).  The RFR is a tool that the food industry uses to alert FDA of dangerous food products.  FDA has stated that this dashboard will be a more efficient and less resource intensive process for the agency to provide data to the public.

  • The RFR dashboard includes over 10 years of data, covers 28 commodities, and addresses 20 food safety hazards. Unlike the past RFR annual reports, the new dashboard allows users to interact with the data to get customized information on specific trends, commodities, hazards, and time frames.

  • FDA has also announced that the agency will begin a project in 2022 to allow companies to export the RFR data from their business systems directly to the portal.  Once complete, companies will be able to upload RFR reports to the Safety Reporting Portal, where product safety issues are reported to FDA.  The information will then be distributed simultaneously to both the RFR and Recalls Programs.  FDA anticipates that this update will become available in 2023.
