Castleberry's: 2007 Botulism Recall; A Case Study by The Food Industry Center

This case summarizes the available information on the 2007 Castleberry’s recall and food recalls in general, and raises questions prompted by a recall of this magnitude. A massive, nationwide recall of Castleberry’s canned food due to botulism in the summer of 2007 illustrates the complexity of the food industry. Product from a single production line at a single plant, packed under 90 labels (the company’s own store brands and foodservice), spurred a recall of tens of millions of cans of food. While every recall is important and unique, the breadth of the Castleberry’s Food Company recall and the severe consequences from botulism lend themselves to this exemplary case study.
