Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- Allergens are the leading cause for recalls, causing significant consumer health issues, scrap costs, and sourcing conundrums. Failures can happen at multiple stages of an operation that lead to incorrect packaging being placed on the line, resulting in undeclared allergens. TraceGains, a full service supplier, compliance, and regulatory document management solution, will be hosting a free webinar discussing Allergen Control Issues with specific emphasis on Label Control measures on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT. AIB International will co-present at this important event. Link to register: https://cc.readytalk.com/cc/s/registrations/new?cid=2xhv3p3m1qb.
Participants will learn to identify points in the process where labels and packaging need to be verified. These checks involve personnel from research and development, art and graphic approval, purchasing, receiving, production, and quality. Attendees will evaluate common pitfalls, such as those associated with material staging and handling of obsolete materials, which too often lead to undeclared allergens reaching the marketplace. Additionally, participants will learn about best practices in Label Control that can be shared with business team members and implemented immediately.
