Foreign material detection is very important to the food industry whether you are using in-line, packaged product, metal or X-ray detection. This white paper will help you understand the regulatory compliance as it relates to all verification activities.
This topic can be confusing to food safety professionals. As this white paper will explain, verification including validation, is critical to the maintenance of a strong food safety programme and to the successful implementation of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Preventative Control (PC) rule and The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) as required by the FDA for juice and seafood and by the United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety Inspection Service for meat and poultry products.
After providing a synopsis of the proposed requirements to implement preventative controls, this paper will dive into the details of verification, using several examples related to the detection of foreign materials.
