An Approach to Validating Allergen Cleaning Procedures
This training on allergen cleaning will cover a rigorous approach to validating cleaning procedures or where cleaning is not possible supporting the need for a ‘may contain’ claim.
Why Should You Attend:
The presence or rather the absence of allergens has become a serious issue within the food industry. Many retailers are moving away from the “may contain” statement as a blanket cover all and are requiring their suppliers to ensure the absence of allergens.
Given the serious of some allergenic reactions it is important that cleaning procedures can be proven to be effective. This approach offers a very stringent system that would meet the requirements of the most demanding customer and gives an insight into interpreting the results of the validation process.
Where a product or process fails the validation process then the ‘may contain’ statement is justified and can be defended with a customer. At the end of this webinar, the speaker will handle your specific questions related to the topic.
