The recall is under way that that we're worried at FDA that consumers may not know what to do we want people to be safe.
So what consumers need to do they have access to a website logon to WW dot FDA dot gov and see if the products recalled its recalled throw it out.
If they're not shore or or don't have access to that the website they can call -- hotline at CDC it at 1800 CDC info.
If -- -- any -- -- -- about whether the product is safe simply leave it on the shelf in the pantry it's not gonna come to any harm.

But where there are many new challenges around around food borne disease in terms of global food supplies and a lot of changes and challenges.
And FDA's recognize that we need to make change.
We we publish plans to do that that's gonna move forward but the key element here for FDA.
