The product recall and contamination market continues to evolve and adjust to developing exposures and new risks. It is clear that companies who look to manage the risk of recall in a holistic manner will be best prepared to survive a recall crisis. A successful recall risk management program must include upfront quality control, management of vendors and contracts, and the ability to respond effectively and efficiently to a crisis.
Our expertise can be the difference in maintaining the safety of your products, and protecting the trust of your customers. The significant recall and contamination incidents in 2016 spanned all product categories from dairy and poultry to cereals to vegetables, many of which can affect company results. As supply chains expand across the globe and become ever more complex, your quality control methods are put under ever increasing strain. Projecting the exposure to a product recall or contamination can be a difficult task not only for the company at risk. Each year hundreds of products are recalled. So now with the rapid developments in scientific technological advances with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and specifically WGS (whole genome sequencing) this scientific technique can aid the food industry range from source tracking of bacterial contaminants to the identification of spoilage communities, an application to real world problems in the food industry.
Fera offers a range of analytical services to the food industry to support contamination incidents and product recalls.
All analyses are fully validated and performed to current industry standards.
