Food safety is of utmost importance at PCC. When recalls happen, many retailers have a policy of simply removing the product, rather than notifying customers. At PCC, we believe in providing open and honest information to our shoppers. Our Product Recalls email newsletter will notify you anytime there’s a product recall or withdrawal.
If you are a co-op member and not receiving recall notices, you can update your preferences by logging into your PCC web account and clicking on “Subscriptions.” Log in to your account here.
If you are not a co-op member, you can sign up to receive recall notifications here.

PRODUCT RECALL VS. PRODUCT WITHDRAWAL
Below you’ll find the criteria we use to determine when to issue a product recall or when to issue a product withdrawal, as well as the steps we take to ensure your safety.
Recalls occur when products are removed from retail sale because of a public health concern. We implement a product recall when a formal recall has been issued.
We learn about these formal recalls in several ways. For example, PCC staff monitor recall web pages and emails from FDA, USDA, and state and local agencies, keeping an eye out for products that we carry. Manufacturers and suppliers may contact us directly by phone as well, or we may implement a recall because of a public health concern for a product that PCC produces, processes or packages at one of our locations.
After learning of a product recall, we immediately remove the product from our shelves. We post signs in our stores to notify shoppers, post a recall notice to our website, and send an email notification to those who subscribe to our Product Recalls email newsletter.
We may issue a product withdrawal when we’ve been notified there may be a quality concern with a product, but there is no known health concern at the time of notification; these are not formal recalls.
Product withdrawals can be initiated through various channels, including customer complaints, vendor notice of a quality issue, or an internal quality concern for a product or ingredient. Often these are factors that could impact the reputation of a product if it were sold, but they wouldn’t cause injury or harm.
