The Food Safety Authority of Ireland, (FSAI) has called on food manufacturers to strengthen food allergen controls and labelling policies following an audit of compliance with allergen labelling legislation. Results of the FSAI audit, published in June of this year, revealed that the management and control of food allergens in some food businesses was insufficient to protect the health of people with food allergies or intolerances. The audit was conducted on a selection of small, medium and large food businesses and showed that food allergen labelling was applied in an inconsistent and sometimes incorrect manner.
More details on the audit can be found here.
We are currently taking bookings on our next Food Allergen Control training course. This course will provide an excellent opportunity for food businesses to review and strengthen their food allergen control and labelling policies.
