A new study reveals that organic and all-natural food products are eight times more likely to be recalled for food safety problems than conventional products.

The non-profit group, Center for Global Food Issues, conducted a nine-month study of food and supplement recalls reported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Food Inspection Agency of Health Canada.

The study cites a variety of reasons for the increase in recalls, including failing to label products with potentially dangerous allergenic ingredients, mislabeled products, bacterial contamination and other safety-related concerns.

The findings are pretty daunting considering that organic products represent less than one percent of the total marketplace but account for more than 8 percent of all recalls. Researchers also note that some retailers have multiple violations for the same products.

Although these figures seem high, U.S. and Canadian food supplies are probably the safest in the world.
