Launched in June 2014, the RASFF consumers’ portal is a consumer-friendly internet tool providing the latest information on food recall notices. It also includes public health warnings issued by food safety authorities and food companies. In the RASFF consumers’ portal, users get access to practical information on product recalls and public health warnings in any given EU country. By using this free tool, EU consumers are able to identify food that has been flagged in the system allowing them to make more informed choices.
For example, a British consumer on holiday in Cyprus will be able to consult the portal to get up to date information on whether any products have been flagged in Cyprus or a Finnish consumer may check latest notices before doing their weekly shopping in Finland.
This dashboard is built by WFSR to record all information published on the RASFF consumers’ portal, since the notifications are removed from the public portal of RASFF after 4 weeks. Users can navigate through this dashboard and filter data based on their needs on product categories, hazard categories and countries. Once data of interest are selected, users are able to download these data in a .CSV format for further analysis.

For some systems like RASFF there may occur small differences; for example between EU commissions RASFF and WFSRs RASFF system due to differences in update timings of their internal respective databases.
