NEW YORK – An advocacy group is giving most major United States grocery store chains a failing score on its 2020 food recall report card.

The U.S. Public Interest Research Group looked at 26 of the largest grocers in the country.

It found 84-percent failed to adequately inform the public on recall notification efforts, including how to sign up for notifications at a store or where to find recall postings inside stores.

Four chains passed with a grade of ‘C’: Harris Teeter, Kroger, Smith’s, and Target. None earned an A or B.

The study’s authors are concerned with the findings, saying consumers need to know about recalls to safeguard their health.
