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.
This webinar will help 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 understand what to consider when choosing sampling and testing methods.
The session will also provide useful example scenarios to demonstrate effective cleaning regime and non-effective cleaning regime. On completing the training, 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.
