Preventing Contamination and Upholding Safety: The Critical Need for Due Diligence in Food Production
There are an increasing number of challenges for today’s food manufacturers. One of the most important challenges is to provide safe products to the end consumer and take the necessary steps to minimise the risk of hazards leading to product recalls. In the event of a recall, legal investigation, or an audit from food safety authorities, manufacturers must be able to provide the necessary documentary evidence to prove that they have been diligent in mitigating risks of contamination and/or mislabeling in the production process. This webinar will cover the concept of due diligence as it relates to product inspection processes and covers legal requirements and standards as well as product recalls.

Unpacking Per- and Poly-Fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in Food Contact Materials
PFAS are synthetic chemicals widely known for thermal stability, hydrophobicity, and relative inertness but may cause harmful health effects. PFAS contamination in food can come from the environment and food chain, but these ‘forever chemicals’ can also get into food via materials that touch our food, such as take-out and delivery containers, deli paper, paper plates, microwave popcorn bags, and baking supplies. Testing for PFAS in food contact materials is critical to ensure food safety. This webinar highlights LCMS and GCMS workflows to analyze PFAS in food contact materials.
