Like it or not, once a hazardous contaminant enters the food supply chain, it flows like a river through all downstream processes, carriers, distribution centers and into restaurants and super markets. Pretending contaminants are not there because they cannot be seen is not a preventive food safety practice.

Biological, chemical and physical contaminants continue to play a significant role in causing human illness and death. While most food supply companies are becoming slowly aware of the breadth of system responsibilities they must assume in terms of preventing food safety problems, many are ineffective due to their lack of how contaminants flow through the supply chain and how to establish procedures to stop such flows from entering or exiting their own doors.

In this session by expert John Ryan, he is going to explain basic allergens and help you establish a potential hazard analysis throughout food processes. You will be able to identify preventive control measures, establish them and set up allergen monitoring procedures. You can take action, document allergen cross-contact and cross contamination plans and controls and protect your company and personnel from lawsuits by taking part in the webinar.

Session Highlights:

  • Understand basic allergens

  • Establish a potential hazard analyses throughout food processes (process flows)

  • Identify preventive control measures

  • Establish preventive controls

  • Set up allergen monitoring procedures

  • Develop procedures

  • Take corrective action

  • Document allergen cross contact and cross contamination plans and controls

Why You Should Attend:

Companies that are not aware of and controlling for cross contaminants are driving their cars at night without the headlights on. Under FDA’s FSMA rules, no company can afford to ignore the need to prevent cross contact or cross contamination through any food process. Biological, chemical and physical hazards have the potential to spread through any process, any food handling operation or any transportation process with the likely result that traceability of the contaminant back to the source can become impossible. Under new preventive control rules, cross contamination by allergens has earned a special place in the training and food safety plan because of their ability to contaminate the work place, equipment, people and other food products.

Who Should Attend:

  • Upper and Mid-level personnel from all registered food operations

  • Food safety team members

  • Food quality personnel

  • Managers and supervisors in food operations

  • Sanitation specialists and teams
