The Three Pillars of Controlling Allergen-Related Recalls

[FSMA Friday] The Three Pillars of Controlling Allergen-Related Recalls

Human error is a frequent cause of allergen-related recalls in food manufacturing, often happening when management systems are not designed to prevent errors.

Preventing an allergen recall requires an understanding of production processes, a focus on consistency, and effective communication with upper management. In this webinar, we’ll focus on what tools and practices are needed to prevent costly allergen-related recalls including:

  • Awareness of the broad financial implications of an allergen-related recall
  • How to align with upper management on allergen control measures
  • Bridging allergen control processes with quality control to ensure consistency and compliance
