How Does PICS Software Handle Produce Recalls?

produce recall proceduresProduce Inventory Control System (PICS) software by WaudWare has always provided users with the ability to fully trace inventory items and non-produce items (packaging materials). PICS traceability allows you to conduct recalls quickly by gathering data through reports and/or screens.

PICS allows you to either run your inventory in a lot-controlled environment (R) or static lot (S).

Government regulations with respect to produce recalls are increasingly demanding and will eventually dictate that all organizations run in a lot-controlled environment (R).

Please note, when conducting a recall, protocol states that not only would you be responsible for reporting on recalled produce, but also packaging material(s) that comes in direct contact with the produce. It is our recommendation that all inventory, including packaging materials, be managed using lot-control in order to provide complete and accurate recall information.

We strongly suggest that you conduct periodic “mock recalls” to audit and confirm that your procedures are working correctly.
