Foreign Bodies – Techniques for Investigation and Identification

Foreign bodies are one of the biggest problems for food manufacturers to avoid and one of the biggest headaches when they occur. Thousands of tonnes of food production can be lost when a foreign body is discovered and the cost of a recall can run into millions if that is required.

Deciding on the best response to finding a foreign body begins with a proper identification, and the good news is that sophisticated laboratory techniques are now available that can help manufacturers make an accurate identification, not just of the foreign body itself, but of its most likely source. A simple investigation can therefore solve the immediate problem, and often prevent an expensive and frustrating recurrence.

This white paper gives an overview of the techniques that can be used to investigate foreign bodies, so that food executives and production managers can appreciate that there are actions they can take to limit the financial and reputational damage that a foreign body incident can engender.
