Allergen awareness is becoming the most crucial issue in the food industry. Progressive food manufacturers are taking active steps to prevent cross contamination. The reasons are simple: 1) Over 6 million people in the United States are sensitive to food allergens 2) Allergen cross-contamination in the food industry is the number one reason for food recalls 3) Allergens are a key focus for FDA inspections in the coming years.


An allergen control program is a systematic method for identifying and controlling allergens in a processing facility, from the incoming ingredients until the final product leaves the truck. Allergens must be identifiable. Use clearly marked storage containers, keep allergens separate, reserve containers for allergen use only, and have a dedicated storage area for allergens. Using brightly colored "allergen" labels on all raw materials alerts all manufacturers to liability.


Helping every employee quickly identify the allergens that are in ingredients, formulas and re-worked material, is a key component in preventing MISUSE.
