I am trying to get data similar to what is shown on https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/default.htm using the api, but I am seeing a lot of discrepancies.
For example when I use the following api call: https://api.fda.gov/food/enforcement.json?search=recalling_firm:%22safeway%22&limit=100 then I see a total of 10 results returned. If I do the same search on the recall website using "Safeway" as the keyword, I only see 5 results returned. What am I missing to get these data sets to match up?
I also see in the food api endpoint searchable fields that the openfda object is listed as searchable, but it always returns empty when when using the food api. Is there another way to get the brand name for food items using this api?
Thank you for your help!!!
