Allergens are the leading cause for recalls, causing significant consumer health issues, scrap costs, and sourcing conundrums. Failures can happen at multiple stages of an operation that lead to incorrect packaging being placed on the line, resulting in undeclared allergens. Participants will learn to identify points in the process where labels and packaging need to be verified. These checks involve personnel from research and development, art and graphic approval, purchasing, receiving, production, and quality.
