All food manufacturers risk potential foreign object hazards. Many of these hazards exist and can cause severe injury to customers with costly recalls. Identifying, training, and preventing these hazards have to be an important part of every manufacturer's operation.
Objectives of the Presentation
Attendees will leave with knowledge of the topic, resources within the government websites, and reference presentation to use. This webinar will give you a clear understanding about the hazards that exist and how it can cause severe injury to a customer and costly recalls. This webinar will also give you a clear understanding about the internal foreign material inspection programs and the measurements taken to reduce complaints.
