Canada has updated food recall warnings and social media channels to make food safety information more accessible to consumers.
Rona Ambrose, Minister of Health, said it was vital that Canadians had confidence in the food they buy and eat.
The agency has changed its food recall warnings, launched a Facebook page, expanded its use of Twitter and will use smartphones and tablets to provide food recall and meat inspection information.
"During recalls, consumers have many questions, from what to do with recalled products to what and why specific products are recalled," said Bruce Cran, president of the consumers association of Canada.
"The governments enhanced recall warnings will provide consumers with better information regarding steps they should take during food recalls."
