PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP here, along with the Canadian arm of standards organization GS1 yesterday announced the introduction of a product recall service that traces and removes potentially harmful food products from the supply chain.
The GS1 Canada Product Recall service will run on the HP “cloud computing” platform for manufacturing, which allows companies to see and share information across the supply chain.
Food and consumer products organizations can use the service to reduce errors, decrease the amount of time it takes to respond to a recall, and mitigate the costs associated with managing the recall process.
“With the integration of GS1 standards and HP’s cloud computing platform, we are reinventing the way that recall information is exchanged between businesses, and further supporting industry efforts to improve consumer safety,” said Art Smith, president and chief executive officer at GS1 Canada.
