What are FDA/USDA alerts?
FDA alerts detail any U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalls, allergy alerts, and warnings. We offer these to users when one may be applicable to an item on your list to help keep you informed of potential health hazards.
Similarly, USDA alerts detail the U.S. Department of Agriculture's alerts and recalls on meat and poultry products.
For international users, we realize this information may not be relevant to you and are working on adding a limitation to how we show these alerts so that only users inside the U.S. will see them.
Where does the FDA/USDA alert show up on my Shopper screen?
FDA alerts are shown as supplemental notes underneath an item's name on your list, this does not replace your own notes for the item. It is purely supplemental and intended to inform of a possible warning relating to this item. Viewing the item info for the item shows you the same alert on the bottom of the screen. Tapping this alert will show the full FDA alert in a browser window within Shopper so you can read the full alert information.
What happens if I click on the FDA/USDA alert?
You will be shown to the FDA or USDA website's page detailing the alert from within a browser window in Shopper.
