Hormel Foods has implemented robust food safety and sanitation systems based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles to ensure the safety of every product produced. Company personnel, independent third parties, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration oversee these food safety systems. In 2012, despite these efforts, 1,300 cases of a product were voluntarily recalled due to an undeclared allergen.

All employees receive food safety training appropriate for their responsibilities within the company.
