Food Allergen Programs: Management of Allergen Cross-Contamination and Validation of Cleaning Procedures to Ensure Effective Removal
This webinar will provide guidance on how to develop and implement an effective cleaning validation plan, customized for specific scenarios, to ensure that the allergen is removed from the food processing line or equipment.
Why Should You Attend:
Very small amount of some allergens such as nuts can cause adverse reactions, including potentially fatal anaphylactic shock. Therefore where HACCP/allergen management plans identify cleaning as a prerequisite to ensure adequate removal of allergens, it is important that cleaning procedures can be proven to be effective. This webinar will provide guidance on how to validate cleaning in terms of allergen removal and it is intended for use in all operations.
By attending this webinar you will understand the purpose of cleaning validation. The training session will focus on how to develop a cleaning validation plan related to food allergens, including the sequence of events likely to proceed in a cleaning validation plan, which can be tailored for specific situations. Participants will have deep understanding on the available technologies for detecting food allergens, which can be used to verify cleaning in food factories in terms of food allergen removal.
In addition, current best practice will be learnt and the participants would gain the required skills to confidently choose the most suitable method of analysis for detecting food allergens.
The session will provide useful example scenarios to demonstrate effective cleaning regime and non-effective cleaning regime depending on the acceptable level. On completion of the training, the participants will be able to develop and use a cleaning validation plan to demonstrate that a defined cleaning procedure is able to effectively and reproducibly remove the allergen from the specific food processing line or equipment. At the end of this webinar, the speaker will handle your specific questions related to the topic.
