Foreign Body Materials: Management Principles and Root Cause Investigations
Date: August 24, 2021 2:00 PM EST
While zero defects is the ultimate goal, nearly every food business will experience a foreign body incident at some point. Most businesses focus on microbiological hazards as they are the most well-known food safety risk, but foreign bodies also pose a risk and should not be ignored. While food manufacturers put controls in place to prevent foreign bodies from entering products, but even with safeguards in place consumers still find them on a frequent basis. A foreign body incident can have a huge impact on consumers and can even lead to product recalls.
This webinar discusses foreign body principles and introduces two fast and effective tools, FTIR and XRF, which are used to assist in the root-cause investigation and identification.
Key learning objectives:
- Food safety impact of foreign bodies
- Foreign body principles: build awareness, promote best practices and develop prevention plans
- Analytical tools with a focus on XRF and FTIR to assist in root cause investigations
- Real factory-level case study examples
