​A DoD All Food and Drug Acts (ALFOODACT) message contains information on recalls or potential recalls of foods, nonprescription drugs, nonprescription medical devices, and health and beauty aids which are known or suspected to be hazardous or have been tampered with and are or may be in the DoD system.

​The DoD's ALFOODACT message system provides worldwide distribution of Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Troop Support, U.S. Department of Commerce (USDC), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or other Government or non-Government agency recalls or potential recalls.

DLA Troop Support coordinates ALFOODACTs for DoD and posts ALFOODACT messages on the DLA Troop Support Subsistence Food Safety web page. The ALFOODACT message contains specific product information and instructions on identifying and disposition of product.  Agencies and individuals can request immediate ALFOODACT notification via email.

Key Food & Drug Recall sites are DLA ALFOODACT, USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, and FDA and are located under Related Sites below.

Questions regarding Food & Drug Recalls may be directed to the APHC Food Protection Program, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.
